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.
1 cup milk
3 tbsp instant coffee
1/2 cup white sugar
2 cups heavy cream
1 pinch salt
1. Whisk together all ingredients into bowl until sugar is dissolved.
2. Cover and refrigerate mixture for at least 2 hours.
3. Pour chilled mixture into ice cream maker and freezing according to manufacturer’s directions until it reaches “soft-serve” consistency.
4. Transfer ice cream into lidded plastic container and freeze overnight
5. Scoop and serve!
Note: Do not use glass containers! Ice cream will turn into rock… learn from my mistake!
