Ever since I made ice cream in summer school with a plastic bag, ice and some salt, I’ve always wanted an ice cream maker!  Now that I finally have a KitchenAid mixer, plus the ice cream mixer attachment, I can freeze up any flavour I want!  Even better, I can adjust the amount of fat and sugar :) Here’s a simple coffee ice cream recipe that more airy than most commercial ice creams.

Ingredients:

1 cup milk
3 tbsp instant coffee
1/2 cup white sugar
2 cups heavy cream
1 pinch salt

Method:

1.  Whisk together all ingredients into bowl until sugar is dissolved.

Note:  Do not use glass containers!  Ice cream will turn into rock… learn from my mistake!
