Coffee Ice Cream Anyone?

Coffee Ice Cream Anyone?

Easily the best way to start your day

If there are two things the good people of Hong Kong are never going to get tired of, it would be a scoop of ice cream and a good cup of coffee. There are numerous joints spread all over Hong Kong which cater to these guilty pleasures of ours (lets face it, more than a few of us add whipped cream to our lattes). So today I want to share an extremely cheap, quick, and delicious recipe for coffee ice cream. Best part - there is no need to use an ice cream maker!

Just last Sunday I had a sudden ice cream craving and was too lazy to go down to my nearest 7/11. As an old and completely madeup Chinese saying goes - "If you have a tendency of being lazy, then you better be blessed with a stocked fridge". In this case, luck would have it that I happened to have two things in my kitchen which made my day - cream and condensed milk.

For the coffee mixture:

Take 2 tsp of any soluble coffee (powder coffee) of your choice and add 2 tbsp of water to it. Stir vigorously for 3-4 minutes until it becomes a homogeneous mixture.

For the ice cream:

Take 200ml of cream and whisk it till soft peaks are formed.

Gently fold in 90ml of condensed milk and the coffee mixture from earlier. (Add 1/2 tsp of vanilla extract if you want more flavour).

Pour it in any mould (tupperware works) and leave it in the freezer to set for about 3 hours and voila! Your coffee ice cream is ready. 

This will make roughly 10 large scoops of ice cream. Enough for one generous serving.

Side effects: brain freeze.
