I love coffee! I drink it daily. I’m one of those people who actually likes the way it tastes. I usually have to stop myself around noon or else I will never fall asleep that night.

But I’m always looking for ways to incorporate the flavor into my desserts. I used cappuccino to flavor this cappuccino cheesecake and these cappuccino eclairs. So, when I came across this coffee ice cream on Cooks Illustrated, I knew I had to make some of my own.

If you’re looking for a creamy churned version of today’s recipe, try this homemade coffee ice cream. It’s absolutely sensational!

If you are sensitive to caffeine or plan to serve the ice cream to kids, you can make it with decaffeinated coffee.

The great thing about this ice cream is that it’s no churn and takes minutes to put together. Whip the cream. Combine the condensed milk and coffee, and then mix it into the whipped cream.  Fold in the chocolate chips and freeze it. You will love this simple and delicious coffee crunch ice cream.
