Coffee Ice Cream Recipe


coffee ice cream



My favorite ice cream ever has to be coffee ice cream. Since starting the Specific carbohydrate diet I have tinkered with a few recipes and found what is my favorite coffee ice cream recipe of all time. It’s dairy free, sugar free, and AMAZING!

Usually when you omit sugar and dairy, ice cream comes out tasting bland and crunchy but this recipe makes a delicious creamy coffee ice cream with a bold flavor that any coffee fan would love.

Everyone has their favorite coffee and mine is Dunkin Donuts Iced Coffee. Since I am on a restricted diet I ordered a black iced coffee, no cream no sugar. This is the perfect flavor to make a coffee ice cream out of because they double brew it to make iced coffee and it really brings a nice flavor to this ice cream.


What you’ll need:

2 13.5 ounce cans of quality full-fat coconut milk

1 tablespoon vanilla

2/3 cup of coffee, your choice of flavor

1/2 cup of honey

I used the Dunkin Donuts coffee but you can use any kind of coffee as long as it is a strong brew because it may lose a little flavor after frozen.

Mix all of the ingredients. Make sure the honey is blended in well because once frozen if it isn’t liquefied with the rest of the ingredients it will change the texture of the ice cream.

Pour into Ice cream maker and let run about 30 minutes. If you don’t have an ice cream maker put in a freezer safe dish and let freeze overnight. I usually keep my freezer temperature at 3 degrees because this seems to keep my ice cream at the perfect eating temperature. It comes out of the freezer ready to serve with no waiting.

Did you try this recipe? Please tell me what you thought.

This looks amazing!! I try to stay away from dairy too, so I might just have to try this!
