Coffee & Coconut Ice Cream

Coffee and coconut ice cream has so much possibility! You can Irish it up, add chocolate chips, or even add fruits like rasberries. And am happy to note that this time (third time's the charm!), the ice cream definately felt creamy and not all ice-crystally.

But first, this recipe is dedicated to Tiffany! A while ago, Tiffany commented that she uses coconut milk with her tea. I found that a bit absurd, even suggesting that she use soy milk instead. But the more I thought about it, the more it made sense. With coffee. Not tea. So, I brewed a strong batch of black coffee, and added a couple of dollops of coconut cream. OH MY GOD - It tastes sooo good!! Now, I've stopped having my daily tea and have coconut cream spiked coffee every day! Everyone should at least try it once - vegan or not.

You should definitely try making a small batch of coconut milk coffee before you attempt making a bigger batch of coconut and coffee icecream. If you like the taste, proceed with the below.

I wanted a bittery coffee taste to my ice cream and so have added just 6 teaspoons of sugar. Do a taste test on your coffee brew and adjust sugar accordingly.

Coffee and Coconut Icecream

Servings: About 6-8 scoops

Ingredients
  • 1 cup coconut cream
  • 4 cups water
  • 4 teaspoons coffee
  • 5-6 teaspoons brown sugar
To make:
  • Brew a strong batch of black coffee using the coffee powder, sugar and water.
  • Let it wittle down to two-thirds of the original batch and then turn off the gas.
  • Let the coffee cool down for 10 minutes before stirring in the coconut cream.
  • Stir well till the mixture is a nice mocha color and there are no coconut cream floating around undissolved.
  • Transfer to a container and freeze -with the lid on -  for a couple of hours.
  • After a few hours, break up the ice cream into chunks and blitz the chunks into a mushy liquid in a blender. Refreeze. Repeat this process a couple of times.
  • Then let it set one final time.

Coconut milk and almond milk have many wonderful uses and in my humble opinion, taste much better than soy. I haven't made ice cream with them yet but it's on my list!

Lizzy said...

An irresistible flavor combination! I'll have to try your recipe after we're out of this deep freeze!

Tiffany said...

Hahahaha! Your post made me crack up! Absurd! :D I drink coconut milk in my tea AND my coffee... But not coconut cream (not because I'm opposed, just because I've never tried it). If you make a tea latte (i.e., like a chai latte or a yerba mate latte), coconut milk is pretty tasty. I just LOVE what you've done with coffee and ice cream! A must try for sure!!!!! :D
