Coffee ice cream is the perfect flavor to make with coconut cream. This substitution saves the day when you are low on dairy cream, which (to me) works best for other flavors such as homemade vanilla or chocolate ice cream.

Be sure to use decaf coffee for your homemade creation. This way, there won’t be any caffeine issues keeping you up late if you enjoy a bowl in the evening!

I recommend decaf beans (Swiss water process) that you grind fresh yourself. This simple step ensures the best taste and no toxic residues.

The coffee flavor blends exceptionally well with the mild taste of the coconut cream.

To my taste buds, you can barely detect any coconut flavor in the ice cream itself.

I recommend mineral-rich date syrup as the fruit-only sweetener for this treat so those with digestive issues can enjoy it as well.

Using date syrup dials up the digestibility several notches compared with a sucrose sweetener like sucanat, maple syrup, or coconut sugar.

Coffee Ice Cream

Simple recipe using 4 ingredients for healthy, decaf coffee ice cream. Dairy free too!

Instructions

  1. Brew strong decaf coffee and let cool on the counter for 15 minutes.

  2. Blend the egg yolks, coconut cream and date syrup in a bowl.

  3. When decaf is cooled, blend with the other ingredients.

  4. Pour the mixture into your ice cream maker. Follow your model’s directions for how long the ice cream is churned.

  5. When the ice cream is frozen and ready (about 25 minutes for my ice cream machine), pour into a shallow, glass baking dish with a tight fitting lid (for easier scoopability).

  6. Enjoy a bowl right away or affix the lid and place in the freezer for later.
