Every morning after the coffee rush hour at our house, I always have about a cup's worth of coffee left. Usually it gets dumped down the drain or fead to the plants outside. I was thinking though, why not take this leftover and and make ice cream? Great idea right? Good, lets go.....
1 cup Heavy Whipping Cream
1 cup half and half
1 cup of Coffee, strong brew of your preferred brand
2/3's cup Sugar
1 teaspoon Vanilla extract
- Take the 1 cup of coffee and add the sugar. Stir until sugar is melted. If coffee is not hot enough, place in microwave for a minute.
- Add the coffee and remaining ingredients into the ice cream machine.
- Freeze mixture according to the instructions for your unit.
- Mixture will not freeze hard in the machine. Once the volume has increased by 1/2 to 3/4 times, and has reached the consistency of soft serve ice cream, spoon the mixture into a lidded container and place in freezer to harden (at least 1 hour before serving).
