How to Make Your Own Coffee Ice Cream in 10 Easy Steps

Regardless of your opinion on creamy vs. bold, the key for making your own coffee ice cream is choosing a flavorful, premium coffee. Would you use unripe strawberries in a strawberry cheesecake? Same principle.

Prefer less caffeine? Use a decaf blend, but choose one you’d like to drink so that the flavor appeals to you. You will need about half a cup of brewed coffee that has been chilled to make one pint of ice cream.

The only other ingredients you will need are cream, sugar, eggs, whole milk, and vanilla extract. Ideally, you will want to use an ice cream maker, but a high-speed blender and freezer-proof bowl with lid will work as well, although this method takes about five hours. Want your coffee ice cream fix faster? Pour some brewed espresso over a scoop of vanilla ice cream and you’ve got affogato, the instant Italian treat.
