Coffee Ice Cream

I Need Coffee
Course Dessert, snacks, treats
Servings 1 quarts


  • Cuisinart Ice cream maker
  • Hand blender (optional)


  • 1 cup whole milk
  • 3/4 cup white sugar
  • 1 ½ tbsp instant coffee for a stronger coffee flavor, add a bit more
  • 2 cups heavy cream
  • 2 tsp vanilla extract


  • Ensure the freezer bowl is frozen. No liquid should be heard when you shake it.
  • Mix together milk and sugar until the sugar is dissolved. I recommend using a hand mixer here to speed up the process.
  • Once sugar is dissolved, add the rest of the ingredients and mix together.
  • Cover and refrigerate mixture for at least 30 minutes.
  • Turn on the ice cream maker, and slowly pour in the mixture. Let the machine run for about 30 minutes.
  • Enjoy straight from the machine, or freeze for about two hours for a more solid texture.
