No-Churn Coffee Ice Cream
Adapted from Food Network
Yield: 6 cups ice cream
14-ounce can sweetened condensed milk
- 2-3 tablespoons espresso powder (depending on how strong of a coffee flavor you prefer)
- 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
- Pinch fine salt
- 2 cups heavy cream, cold
- 12 crushed chocolate sandwich cookies (optional)
- Chill a 9″ x 5″ metal loaf pan.
Whisk together the condensed milk, espresso powder, vanilla, and salt in a large bowl. Set aside.
Whip the cream with a mixer on medium-high speed until firm peaks form, about 2 minutes.
Fold about 1 cup of the whipped cream into the condensed milk mixture with a rubber spatula until combined, then fold the lightened mixture into the whipped cream until well blended.
Pour into metal loaf pan and freeze, covered, until thick and creamy, like soft-serve, about 2 hours.
Swirl in crushed chocolate cookies (if using) with a spoon.
Continue to freeze, covered, until solid and scoopable, about 3 hours more.
