The use of whole beans creates an almost-white coffee ice cream, with all the robust flavor of freshly brewed coffee. The oil from the beans seeps into the cream and the result is almost like a 'coffee cream tea' that turns into smooth, rich ice cream. Serve this ice cream in cold-brewed coffee for a delicious coffee-coffee float on hot days.

  • Combine cream, sugar, and egg yolks in a saucepan; cook and stir over medium-low heat until mixture is heated through but not boiling, 10 to 15 minutes. Remove saucepan from heat and add coffee beans. Transfer cream mixture to a bowl and refrigerate, 8 hours to overnight.

  • Strain coffee beans out of cream mixture. Stir milk, vanilla extract, and salt into cream mixture; transfer to bowl of ice cream maker.

  • Process cream mixture in the ice cream maker according to manufacturer's instructions.

Cook's Notes:

Coffee from the bulk bins at the grocery store are a great option; the better the coffee the better the flavor.

Tips

Vegans can easily substitute coconut cream for the heavy cream and coconut milk for the whole milk, skipping the eggs. Non-vegans should definitely not skip the eggs!
