vietnamese coffee ice cream


I'm not writing about this Vietnamese Coffee Ice Cream because it's delicious or because I'm still obsessed with my new ice cream maker or even because it's currently a bagillion degrees in Manhattan and the kind of day when a girl just needs some ice cream.

No, the real reason that I'm writing about this Vietnamese Coffee Ice Cream is because by the time you read this, I will be on my way to Vietnam! I will be travelling through Southeast Asia for the next five weeks, but will return at the end of September armed with lots of exotic food stories!

Vietnamese Coffee Ice Cream
From The Perfect Scoop by David Lebovitz

1.5 cups sweetened condensed milk
1.5 cups very strong coffee
1/2 cup half and half
big pinch of freshly ground coffee

Whisk all ingredients together and chill thoroughly. Then process in your ice cream maker , freeze and enjoy! I stirred in about a half of a cup of dark chocolate chunks when my ice cream was done churning.
