Homemade Coffee Ice Cream with Dark Chocolate Chips

We've been having lots of fun with the ice cream maker attachment for our Kitchenaid stand mixer.  We've mixed up a few different recipes but one family favorite was the homemade coffee ice cream with dark chocolate chips.  It was SO good and creamy!  


I just love how easy it is to make homemade ice cream!  

Ingredients:

1 cup whole milk
3/4 cup sugar
4 packets of single serving sized Folgers instant decaf coffee
1 tablespoon cocoa powder
2 cups heavy cream
2 teaspoons vanilla extract 
1 cup dark chocolate morsels 

In a small bowl we combined the milk, sugar and instant coffee. 



Then we added in the cocoa stirring until the powder was blended into the milk.  Then we slowly added in the heavy cream and vanilla.


We poured the mixture into our pre-frozen ice cream maker and turned the mixer on low for 20 minutes.  We added in the chocolate chips during the last two minutes of mixing.

When it was all done mixing we had a nice soft serve coffee ice cream.  We poured it into a plastic container and put a lid on it then popped it in the freezer for two hours to firm up.  Though I honestly could have eaten it just as it was!  It was soooo gooood!



After dinner we scooped up some ice cream into our bowls and enjoyed this cool, refreshing, flavorful treat.




Have you ever tried making homemade ice cream?

What's your favorite ice cream flavor or topping?

  1. Oh my stars! That's my favorite flavor. I treat myself to ice cream once a month at my favorite ice cream parlor. If I had a machine, I'd use it waaaaay too often!

    1. The only good thing about having a machine and 5 people is that we don't even each get a full serving before it's gone... which I actually kind of like or else I'd eat waaay to much of it.

    1. Wow! I can't believe you've never tried coffee ice cream; it's one of my favorites (as long as there are chunks of something chocoately or like Oreo cookie pieces in it).

  5. Sounds good! I make homemade ice cream quite often, and it's been far too long since I've made coffee ice cream. My husband doesn't drink coffee (has never had a single sip!), but he loves coffee ice cream. #MMBH

    1. Neither my husband nor I drink coffee either and I had to go searching for instant coffee at the store to make this... and yeah, we both love coffee ice cream too.

    1. Homemade ice cream is quite creamy. I love any sort of crunchy chocolate bits and pieces in my ice cream.
