I’ll admit, I am not a very big fan of coffee ice cream. Strange I know, because I can’t start my morning without a cup or two, but when it comes to the flavor, I tend to pass. Since I am not a huge fan, I decided to jazz up this version a bit with some chocolate. I guess you could say it’s mocha. This version is caffeinated, but only because I did not feel like buying decaffeinated coffee (which would never be used again). If you are sensitive to afternoon caffeine like me, and want to be able to eat it at night, you should definitely use decaf. I would recommend pairing this ice cream with a shortbread cookie.
2 cups heavy cream
1 cup whole milk
0.5 cup brown sugar
1.5 tablespoon instant coffee
0.5 cup mini chocolate chips
In a bowl create the base by combining the heavy cream, milk, brown sugar, and instant coffee. Whisk until the sugar and coffee have dissolved.
Add the base to your ice cream maker and churn to the manufactures instructions.
Once the ice cream has fully churned, slowly fold in the chocolate chips.
Refrigerate for a few hours.
Serve and enjoy!
