Coffee Ice Cream

Coffee ice cream was my favorite flavor from the time I was very small. With this recipe, we successfully recreated the deep creamy flavor of coffee in a custard-like ice cream. This recipe brought back all the memories of enjoying coffee ice cream growing up.

    Made this ice cream tonight to take to a family get together. Our locally made maple syrup was Grade A, but still tasted great. I also used caffeinated instant coffee instead of decaf, which I couldn’t find. This recipe yielded a nice batch of ice cream with a strong coffee flavor on the front end, followed by a light coconut flavor. Everyone loved it!

      AJ: Glad you enjoyed the recipe. I know Starbucks makes VIA, an instant coffee that comes in decaf. This is by far one of my favorite treat recipes! Happy cooking!

    This recipe was AMAZING! I typically don’t eat dairy and I LOVE coffee so this recipe is perfect! I did use caffeinated coffee, though. Next time I’m going to experiment with espresso. Thank you so much for sharing!
