Elegant and Affordable: Kahlua Ice Cream

Kahlua Ice Cream

I don’t have an ice cream maker.  I have thought them to be dangerous inventions.  If I have an ice cream maker in the house, then I will have the ability to have ice cream in the house ALL. THE. TIME.  And that my friends could be very dangerous. 🙂

Unfortunately…and fortunately, Lindy over at A Taste of Wintergreen has ruined this brilliant plan of mine.  By making awesome ice cream WITHOUT an ice cream maker!  And she didn’t just make any ice cream…she made Kahlua Ice Cream!  Well, I made some and it was heavenly (not to mention easy)!

Kahlua Ice Creamfrom A Taste of Wintergreen

  • 2 cup whipping cream
  • 1/2 cup sweetened condensed milk
  • 1/4 cup strong coffee
  • 3 Tbs Kahlua

Whip the cream with an electric mixer until stiff peaks form.

Combine the sweetened condensed milk, coffee and Kahlua and whisk until smooth.  Stir into the whipped cream.

Using a spatula, put cream mixture into a large, freezer-safe container with a lid.  Cover and freeze for 5-6 hours.  After two hours, remove from freezer and stir well before placing back into the freezer.

Remove just before serving to keep the solid consistency.

Serve with Homemade Chocolate Sauce.

    Kenley, you are killing me here, first homemade chocolate sauce and now Kahlua ice cream. Imagine them together! You must stop with the temptations!

      HAHAHA! I figured I’d do a “double whammy!” Promise to try to do some less tempting recipes later in the week. 😉

    Yummy, sounds and looks great. I understand about the ice cream maker, it would be dangerous in my home too.

      Thanks Cynthia! And glad to hear you’re with me on the “ice cream makers are dangerous” concept! 😉

    I feel like I say this about every single one of your posts, but oh man, that looks SO GOOD. It’s supposed to be 90-plus degrees here all week and a bowl of ice cream sounds like perfection. Thank you for sharing!

    The recipe and instructions are so simple, that we think it’s more dangerous than an ice cream machine! Ice cream machines sound good in theory, but we never take ours out of storage haha!

      You’ve got a really good point!! This you don’t have to haul out an appliance for! 🙂

    Wow, that looks so good! And I happen to happen cream in the fridge and a can of condensed milk in the cupboard… I have usually made my homemade ice cream using a custard base, but this is so much easier!

      Thanks so much! Yes, I found this to be a really easy way to make ice cream — and so very delicious! 🙂

  12. Wow that is surprisingly easy! This would be the perfect dessert for a casual dinner party.

    Ahhh Kenley it’s been far too long since I’ve visited your lovely blog!! This is BRILLIANT! I actually DO have an ice cream maker but I totally want to make this! It sounds so heavenly and so crazy easy! I can’t believe I didn’t actually need an ice cream maker to make ice cream. What a let down. (haha not really :)) I can’t wait to try this–thanks for sharing!!

      So nice to have you visiting again, Erika!!
      So glad you like the recipe! I think Lindy really knocked it out of the park! If you haven’t already, you should check out her blog — on the same post she talks about the Kahlua Ice Cream that I made, she also makes a vegan chocolate gelato using the same process!!
