As you know, I am crazy about anything mocha flavoured. When I was a kid, coffee ice cream was among my favourite things in the world.
The idea that I can take leftover coffee, make a chocolate syrup in minutes and come up with this easy low-fat but super tasty sorbet any time I want is why I love being a foodie. I can take mundane kitchen ingredients and make this killer sorbet.
Homemade frozen treats are so much better for you than store-bought which are usually filled with additives and preservatives. This recipe is low in fat, high in flavour with very few ingredients so it is cheap to make!
First you will need to make the chocolate sauce. Put 1 cup sugar, 1 cup cocoa and 3/4 cup water in a medium sauce pan.
Whisk over medium heat constantly until sugar dissolves, around 5 minutes.
I like to sieve the sauce into a bowl. Cool completely and chill in the fridge.
Whisk together 3 cups cold coffee and 1 can condensed sweetened milk.
Whisk together coffee, condensed sweetened milk and syrup until well combined.
Pour slowly into frozen ice cream maker.
Let churn for at least 25 minutes. When it comes to frozen treats, the longer it is in the frozen ice cream maker the better. The biggest mistake is taking it out too soon.
This is tasty on its own but it is also fabulous in milkshakes and smoothies! It ended up being “killer” good because I forget I used Reg’s coffee which means it was filled with caffeine, LOL. The first time I had it I got all spun out of control and wondered where all this energy came from.
Next time? Decaf!
Reg loved it too but I make sure to serve it as an afternoon treat and not in a dinner time smoothie.
