Coffee lovers and ice cream fanatics rejoice in this delicious dessert. This Coffee Chocolate Chip Ice Cream recipe is the perfect sweet treat that gives you a little boost too!
Confession: I love ice cream. Like I really love ice cream. I could eat it constantly – especially in the summertime. The cool, creaminess on a hot day is just perfection. So, today I thought I’d bring you an easy little recipe for Coffee Chocolate Chip Ice Cream. And since it has coffee in it, you can have it with your breakfast, right? Go for it. I promise I won’t tell a soul.
Making ice cream couldn’t be easier – especially if you have a great ice cream maker. Then you just gather up all your ingredients, dump and forget. You’ll have ice cream in no time!
I usually chocolate chips in our ice cream because I always have those on hand. I typically don’t have chocolate bars in the pantry. They get eaten too quickly. But if you prefer, you can grab your favorite chocolate bar and give it a chop. Then use those chunks in the ice cream in lieu of chocolate chips.
- ½ Cup chocolate chips
- 2 Tbsp espresso
- ¾ Cups milk
- ½ cup sugar
- 2 Cups heavy cream
- 1 tsp Vanilla
- Put the ice cream maker bowl in the fridge.
- In a bowl mix the milk, sugar, heavy cream, and vanilla
- Take the mixture and pour it into the ice cream maker bowl.
- In a separate bowl, dissolve the espresso in ¼ cup hot water. Then add to the ice cream maker.
- Mix it following the ice cream maker instructions.
- Halfway through the mixing process, add in the chocolate chips.
- Serve, top with more chocolate chips, and enjoy.
You can also tweak this recipe a little if you’d like. I have started adding a splash of vanilla because you can never have too much vanilla, right? Plus since I make my own Vanilla, it’s in plentiful supply. You can also add some Roasted Coffee Beans in addition to the chocolate chips to give it a little more crunch and coffee flavor.
If you’ve never made your own ice cream before you really need to give it a try. It’s really simple to do and you can make so many different flavors.
