Coffee Ice Cream

Homemade ice cream is fantastic. It’s fresh and delicious, especially when it’s made with your own home-roasted coffee. Ahhh. . . the perfect summer treat.


  • 3 cups light cream
  • 1 3/4 cups sugar
  • 3 beaten eggs
  • 1/2 tsp. salt
  • 1 1/2 tsp. vanilla
  • 1/4 cup rum or Kahluá
  • 1/2 cup cold strong coffee
  • 1 cup heavy whipping cream

Heat and Beat, then Chill

Scald light cream while blending in sugar. Add slowly over beaten eggs and blend thoroughly. Cook while stirring on top of a double boiler until thickened, and chill.

Add coffee

Next add the cooled coffee, salt, and whipping cream.

Ice Cream Machine

With either electric or hand-operated ice cream freezer, use churning instruction with the freezer. Begin churning in the freezer. When almost frozen, add vanilla and Kahluá. The finished ice cream will be of a soft-serve consistency until hardened in a freezer.


You may omit the Kahluá and try a flavored coffee in this recipe.
