Easy DIY: Coffee Ice Cream

Where I live, the past couple of weeks have been very hot weather-wise. I love summer and sunny days, but my skin does’t really enjoy it. I’ve witness an increase in the freckle population on my cheeks, and it’s not flattering. Also, sunny days come with humidity because we are in the transition between summer to rainy weather. This humidity, in addition to the hot days, have made me feel very sticky. Thus, these days call for only one solution: coffee ice cream :) It’s not everyday that I can go to Haagen Dazs and get my favorite coffee ice cream, so I decided to get creative in the kitchen and make my own.

The ingredients:

I love coffee and coffee love runs in my family. A few years ago we got this little espresso and capuccino machine from Oster. Although I still haven’t mastered the art of cappuccino making, this machine has been very handy. It’s simple to use, all you need is ground coffee and water! If you don’t own any coffee machine, then instant coffee will do the trick.

To sweeten things up a bit, I used condensed milk, but if you don’t have it then Nutella would be a great option as well.


1. Prepare an espresso shot or strong black coffee (don't add any sugar since we are going to use the condensed milk, which is super sweet).

2. While the coffee cools down, place the condensed milk on a small container. I used this rounded glass container, but any other that you like can work as well.

3. Pour the coffee over the condensed milk, but do not stir them together. I used equal amounts of coffee and condensed milk. Cover and then refrigerate until it has frozen. I left it in the freezer the whole night.

4. Remove from the freezer and enjoy :)

I hope you liked this easy DIY! Let me know what you think! Do you have other ice cream recipes that recommend?
