Seriously Good Coffee Flavored Ice Cream with no Egg

This ice cream reminds me of the Carmel Mocha Java Chillers from Sonic.  It is so super rich and flavorful.  Why bother wasting the gas?  For the cost of a cup of coffee you can have this wonderful treat without leaving your home.

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).
