Useful tips for Coffee Ice Cream

I’ve got a major sweet tooth, but this ice cream was sweet enough for me without any additions. If you’d like it sweeter, add a date or two (Lenny did to his and it was even better).

If you’re planning to make this as an evening treat, use decaf coffee so you’re not up all night. šŸ™‚

You’ll need to use your tamper. Why? BecauseĀ there is no liquid, and both ingredients areĀ frozen. [Push from the corners into the blade. It takes a little time to process and your Vitamix may sound like it’s struggling, but don’t worry, it’s not! It can absolutely handle frozen bananas and ice cubes. Just make sure you’re blending on high (so the cooling mechanism kicks in).]

This recipe makes about 4 servings. If you won’t be serving it all, pre-scoop it onto a cookie sheet, and put in the freezer. When you’re ready to serve, leave your scoops on the counter for five minutes and it’s perfect again.
