Dr. Pepper Ice Cream–Day 18: Ice Cream Marathon

There are some things that automatically come to mind when you think about someone. 

For instance, when I think of my husband I think of Dr. Pepper.   

He is slightly addicted to Dr. Pepper.

And by slightly, I mean totally.

The whole world knows it.  We’ve had family and friends pass along recipes, candy, and even freezer pops made with Dr. Pepper.

I hear it is a Texas thing and he definitely drinks more of it when we’re back in his hometown than he does usually.

Those 23 flavors are pretty unique so I got curious to see how I could incorporate into some ice cream. 

Reducing it down into ultra-concentrated Dr. Pepper seemed to do the trick!

Adapted from Nigella Lawson


  • 2 c. Dr. Pepper + more if you want to serve as a float
  • 2 tbsp. brown sugar
  • 2 c. heavy cream
  • 3/4 c. powdered sugar
  1. Reduce the Dr. Pepper and sugar in a saucepan over medium heat until you have 1/2 c. total.  Let cool and pour into a cup.  Chill in the refrigerator.
  2. In a stand mixer, whisk the cream and cooled Dr. Pepper until combined.  Slowly add in the powdered sugar and beat until soft peaks form and the cream holds it shape.
  3. Transfer to a container and freeze until set.
  4. Serve scooped into glasses with Dr. Pepper poured over the top.
