I love coffee ice cream and have been searching and saving lots of recipes for months. The problem I`ve been encountering is that I don`t have coffee beans, coffee granules, instant coffee or coffee anything. Because I don`t drink coffee. I only drink mocha frappacinos because it`s all icy and has chocolate. tehe ♥ That, and this Japanese coffee milk drink during finals week when I stay up to like 4am studying. Even then, I only need about 1/4 cup of it to keep me awake. LOL.
However, I love coffee flavor things like ice cream and candy. Omg, I do love coffee candy. (ahem, I love candy in general. It`s like I`m a kid. Hey, I`m only 21…so still a kid, basically.)
Anyways, I found this recipe on Sam`s blog Sweet Remedy where you just pour in the coffee! I still had problem with having no coffee…but that predicament was soon solved.
Last quarter, I was so busy I forgot to by those Japanese coffee milk drinks to stock up for Finals week. As the quarter progresses, I get progressively less sleep per day from like 8 hrs/day to 5hrs/day. Thus, when it came to my last final, I was SO SO SLEEPY, but I didn`t have any of my coffee milk!
Lucky for me, one of my apartment-mate is addicted coffee. Starbucks makes money off of people like her. LOL. She had a coffee maker! Unfortunately, I didn`t know how to use it. I texted her around 1am for her permission to use it. Then, I begged my roommate to make us some coffee. We each made our own cups by adding in a ton of milk and sugar. It was gross but, I needed the caffeine and drank away.
We had leftover brewed coffee, so I put it in the fridge and after my morning final and a long nap, I made this!
I added some toffee into the ice cream since I love toffee and had a lot of Health toffee bits. Yum. 🙂 The ice cream was a little icy, but it was still really good! It definitely had the coffee flavor and I loved the crunch from the toffee pieces.
