Ingredients

  • 1 cup whole milk
  • ½ cup granulated sugar
  • ¼ cup packed light brown sugar
  • 1 to 1½ tablespoons instant espresso or coffee, to taste
  • 2 cups heavy cream
  • 1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
  • 1 pinch salt

Preparation

  1. In a medium bowl, whisk the milk, sugars, espresso powder, and salt until the sugar is dissolved. Stir in the heavy cream and vanilla extract. Cover and refrigerate until well chilled, preferably overnight.
  2. Assemble the Mix It In™ Soft Serve Ice Cream Maker with the paddle secured and dispenser handle in its upright position. Turn on and pour in the chilled base. Churn until the desired serving consistency is reached, 25 to 30 minutes. If ice cream is not thick enough, pour back into the freezer bowl and continue mixing until the desired consistency is reached, checking every few minutes. The ice cream will have a soft, creamy texture.
  3. Serve in cups or cones, adding desired toppings while dispensing ice cream.
