I am a self admitted coffee ice cream addict! My husband is so sick of catching me down the ice cream aisle drooling over the Haagen Dazs (both coffee pint and bars) that he teases me about my said addiction every time we have ice cream. Rather than give in and quit coffee ice cream, I decided to double down and make the ultimate version at home using one of my favorite kitchen appliances – the Nostalgia Ice Cream Maker (purchase here) which uses ice & salt to make the ice cream. It works much better than the machines with the freezing bowls.If you’ve never made your own homemade ice cream don’t be scared—you’re in for a real treat. The flavor and texture are remarkably better; creamier and far more intense than anything you can buy out. Trust me on this.
*Xanthan Gum (purchase here) is optional in this recipe, if you love making ice cream at home, then it’s worth having in your pantry – it creates creamier and smoother ice cream because it helps prevent the formation of ice crystals.
