Coffee ice cream has been around since the mid-19th century. The first recorded recipe dates back to 1919. It consisted of crushed ice, cream and coffee syrup. Modern coffee ice cream is made by dissolving fine coffee grounds into the hot ice cream base. Coffee flavored ice cream can be served by itself or used for preparing milkshakes. Be careful when giving it to children as it contains caffeine.
To celebrate the National Coffee Ice Cream Day, go out to your favorite ice cream parlor and indulge yourself with this delicious treat. If you have an ice cream maker, you can try your hand at making coffee flavored ice cream at home. It is not so hard to make as it may seem.
In a bowl, whisk 1 cup heavy cream and 1/3 cup sugar until the sugar dissolves completely. The mixture must be frothy. Add 1/2 cup milk, 1/2 cup extra strong brewed coffee (be sure to chill it first) and 1 tsp vanilla extract. Whisk until blended.
Cover the bowl with plastic wrap and put in the fridge for an hour to chill. Then prepare the ice cream in an ice-cream maker following the manufacturer's directions. You can top the ice cream with whipped cream or chocolate syrup before serving.Remind me with Google Calendar
