How to Make Homemade Coffee Ice Cream
This simple recipe works well, and you don’t need to buy the ice cream machine. So easy and simple so you can have nice scoops of coffee ice cream in no time.
- 2 cups of heavy cream
- 2 tablespoons of instant espresso granules
- ¼ cup of hot water to make the coffee
- 1 teaspoon of vanilla extract
- 1 can of sweetened condensed milk (14 ounces)
- Pinch of salt
1Put hot water into a cup or medium bowl and add the espresso granules. Then whisk it until the granules are dissolved, just similar to the process of making instant coffee. Make sure the water is hot enough, or you will get wads of espresso, and you cannot get the maximum taste and smell from the coffee. You can wait until the espresso cools down a little before going to the next step, or just continue it since the heat will help in mixing the ingredients.
2Put vanilla extract, salt, and the sweetened condensed milk into the bowl and mix it well. Whisk it until you cannot differ the ingredients anymore.
3In another bowl, beat the heavy cream with a high-speed mixer until it forms stiff whipped cream. For the test, you can turn over the bowl, if the cream does not fall, then you are ready. Put the sweetened condensed milk mixture into the whipped cream bowl and mix it. Be careful; you definitely do not want it to be overmixed.
4Pour the ice cream to a freezer-safe container, or you can use a loaf pan. Cover it up with plastic wrap and it is ready to get in the freezer. Just leave it for at least six hours or overnight for the best result.
5If it is ready and you want to enjoy it, just use heat ice cream scoop with hot water before scooping the ice cream. Then you can play with whatever topping you want or just enjoy the ice cream as it is.
What is more incredible than bittersweet dessert than can make you wake up and get ready for the next thing on your schedule. Enjoy your coffee ice cream whenever you want.
