This homemade Amaretto Poppy Seed ice Cream is delightful, with a complex almond flavor and a bright crunch from the poppy seeds, it's an unexpected treat!


Total time

0 minutes




  • ¾ cup whole milk
  • 1¾ cups heavy cream
  • ½ cups Poppy seeds
  • ½ cup sugar
  • 1½ tsp almond extract
  • 1½ tsp Amaretto liqueur
  • ½ tsp vanilla paste or extract


  1. Heat the milk, cream, sugar and poppy seeds in a saucepan on the stove, just until it comes to a simmer. Take off the heat and add the almond extract, Amaretto, and vanilla. Let it cool and then refrigerate for several hours until completely chilled.
  2. Pour the chilled mixture into the bowl of your ice cream maker and process according to your machine's directions. Mine took just 20 minutes of churning.
  3. Eat right away or keep in the freezer for a firmer texture.
