Coffee Ice Cream is the best of both worlds, a hit of caffeine and a delightful treat. Plus, easy to make and filled with chocolate chunks.
I promise I won’t judge you if you have this for breakfast. Mostly because I’ve done it. Coffee and ice cream are acceptable anytime of day.
This Coffee Ice Cream has real and actual coffee in it. I used instant coffee to make sure it dissolved, but I may also try out some espresso next time. I mean, I love espresso in drink form so why not ice cream.
Heavy cream, milk, sugar, vanilla, and coffee are all it takes for this one. Then you strain out any undissolved coffee and let the ice cream maker do the work. Once it’s close to totally churned, add the dark chocolate chunks to get all mixed up in there.

Creamy Coffee Ice Cream with real coffee and dark chocolate chunks in every bite.
2 cups heavy cream
1 cup milk
3/4 cup sugar
1/2 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
2 Tablespoons Instant Coffee
Dark Chocolate Chunks
1. In a medium bowl, add the heavy cream, milk, sugar, vanilla, and instant coffee. Mix together until sugar is dissolved. Cover and place in the fridge overnight.
2. Remove from the fridge and strain liquid into another bowl to catch any coffee granules.
3. Pour into the ice cream maker and churn for about 25 minutes or until it’s the consistency of soft serve ice cream. Pour the dark chocolate chunks into the machine as well and churn for another few minutes until all combined.
4. Remove ice cream and transfer to an ice cream container or a freezer safe container. Freeze for several hours until more solid. Serve and enjoy!
