It’s hot here…like my flip flops feel like they are melting and sticking to the ground when I’m outside hot! So, I’ve given up my traditional hot coffee in the morning for iced coffee! Besides, I prefer iced coffee anyway.
Most of the time I like to make my own foo-foo coffee drinks when I can. However, sometimes we are rushed out the door in the morning with swim lessons, summer movie fun, and early morning play dates so I don’t always have time to make my own.
I was so excited to try the new International Delight Iced Coffee….I really wanted to try the vanilla flavor, but my store was out…so I opted for the original flavor. I figured I could add my own flavors if I wanted to. After my first glass, I knew I had to make some ice cream with it! It pretty much had everything already in it and would be an easy dessert on these 115 degree days!
I added the half & half just to up the fat content a little. I wanted to make sure it would be decadent enough for dessert. Feel free to use whole milk or heavy cream…whatever you normally have on hand. Use an automatic ice cream maker to make it even easier….don’t forget to pre-freeze your inner container! Okay, really…this is more like an ice milk than an ice cream, but it’s still really good!
Java Chip Ice Cream
2 1/2 cups International Delight Iced Coffee (Original Flavor)
1/2 cup half & half (whole milk or heavy cream)
1/3 cup chocolate chips, melted
Follow instructions of your machine for making ice cream. Add coffee and half & half to ice cream maker. When ice cream is 5-10 minutes from being done (it should be somewhat thick at this point), drizzle in melted chocolate. Let ice cream continue turning until done.
Serve immediately for a soft serve style or transfer to a freezer safe container and freeze for a couple hours to harden.
