you’re not initializing this correctly. First of all: remove scope. In template you put your “body” message. You could leave that empty though.

Here is a working code example.

function showAlert() {
  var alertPopup = $ionicPopup.alert({
    title: 'Don\'t eat that!',
    template: 'It might taste good',
    buttons: [
      {text: '<b>Yeah</b>, ok then'}

  alertPopup.then(function(res) {
    console.log('Thank you for not eating my delicious ice cream cone');
