Recipe Ingredients 

  • Heavy cream – helps to create a smooth and soft ice cream. You cannot substitute this with a lower fat milk, it must be a good quality cream! 
  • Sweetened condensed milk – this sweetems the ice cream and allows us to create a thick base without a custard. It also helps prevent the mixture from freezing solid.
  • Espresso powder – gives us an intense coffee flavor to the ice cream. It needs to be dissolved in hot water so you don’t end up with large chunks of it left.
  • Mini chocolate chips – provide a fun crunch and chocolate flavor.
