Coffee Ice Cream

Last weekend we made coffee ice cream. We added chopped chocolate covered espresso beans and for the splash of liquor we used Kahlua. This is a good ice cream, but it's not as tasty as the coffee ice cream we made last year. That ice cream recipe used eggs. This year, we used a recipe that is just heavy cream, milk, sugar, vanilla, and coffee. I wasn't sure how I was going to like it, I suspected I wouldn't like it as much, and I was right. I agreed to use the no-egg recipe because we had a bit of a time crunch and the 'no egg' recipe could be churned right away whereas the 'with egg' recipe would have had to chill overnight before being churned.

Next time, I think we'll make the 'with eggs' coffee ice cream recipe. This one is disappointing because it's not as creamy and rich, plus the Kahlua taste is a bit too strong, and it leaves me feeling a bit 'bleah' after I eat it. We'll eat it, but I'm not asking for extra scoops like I usually do!
