If you are a serious coffee lover like me, you will appreciate the intense flavours of freshly brewed espresso and ground coffee beans in this delicious yet simple to make ice cream. No custards to make – just coffee, some sugar and cream. Oh, and choc chips for good measure!

No ice cream maker? Head on over to Delicieux to WIN a Cuisinart Ice cream maker (closes Sun 4 March, Australian residents only).

While the recipe has been right under my nose eversince I got my Cuisinart ice cream maker, it was Chanel who first alerted me to its existence. I knew I had to make it, after all coffee and chocolate and an occasional glass of red wine is what my doctor had ordered to alleviate those nasty migranes I sometimes get. Now, I can do that on a hot day with a scoop or two of this cool treat.

I can imagine the ice cream going extremely well with an oozy chocolate fondant cake or in a double hit affogato, but it’s just as delicious eaten straight out of the tub, in a waffle cone or a cup.

Coffee choc chip ice cream
Recipe type: Coffee, Dessert, Ice Cream, Choc Chip
Prep time: 
Cook time: 
Total time: 
Serves: 5 cups
I've changed the original Cuisinart recipe to incorporate freshly brewed espresso, extra cocoa and some freshly ground coffee beans for intensity. I also used skim milk and whipped my cream before churning the ice cream, for a lighter consistency.
For the ice cream:
  • 1 cup skim milk, well chilled
  • ¾ cup granulated sugar
  • 60ml espresso coffee, chilled
  • 2 tbsp freshly ground coffee
  • 2 tbsp cocoa powder
  • ¼ cup dark chocolate (chips), chopped finely
  • 2 cups heavy cream, well chilled
  • 1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
To make the ice cream:
  1. in a medium bowl, whisk together the milk, vanilla, sugar, cocoa powder, espresso and ground coffee until the sugar is dissolved.
  2. In another bowl, whip the cream until soft peaks form.
  3. Add whipped cream and chopped chocolate to the coffee milk mixture and whisk gently to combine.
To churn:
  1. Turn the machine on, pour the mixture into freezer bowl and let mix until thickened, about 25 – 30 minutes.
To store:
  1. Transfer to a chiled loaf tin or an airtight container and freeze for 2 hours before serving.
  2. The ice cream is ready to serve even after longer chilling time - the cream keeps it scoopable at all times.

  1. Oooh, I’m bookmarking this to try! I’ve got some choc-coated coffee beans that I want to throw into a coffee ice-cream base but, for some reason, all the ones I’ve come across want lots of yolks for the custard base (up to 10!). This recipe means I can be lazy and skip the custard-making bit altogether!

  2. Marty, I love a great tasting ice cream and I don’t think I have made a coffee based ice cream for years. Love the sound of this recipe, definitely one to print and try. And congratulations on being a finalist in The Melting Pot. Well deserved.

  3. This looks divine! I love the skim + whipped cream combo. Very smart. This is my husband’s absolute favorite ice cream flavor. I have a feeling that if I send him this recipe, he’ll buy me an ice cream maker straight away.

    That usually does the trick =) Sneaky, sneaky me.
