Why Would You Make Ice Cream Without Eggs?
Ice cream traditionally has eggs, but you may be reluctant to use them. When you add eggs to ice cream, you need to choose between using raw eggs, which can have contaminants, and following a complicated set of instructions for cooking the eggs before using them in the recipe. With egg-free recipe, you don’t need to worry. Also, don’t worry about the texture. The ice cream comes out just fine without eggs.
Best Coffee for Ice Cream
The predominant flavor in coffee ice cream is coffee, so it is important to choose the best one. A low-acid coffee lets you avoid bitter or sour flavors from a regular, highly acidic, coffee. Alex’s Low-Acid Organic Coffee is also free from mold and mycotoxins, as well as heavy metals. Brew it strongly to make sure you get full flavor!
If you are having this ice cream in the evening for dessert, you might want to use a decaffeinated type of coffee. Alex’s Low-Acid Organic Coffee comes in Regular, Half Caff, and Decaf varieties so you can choose how much caffeine goes into your ice cream.
Variations of Coffee Ice Cream

Reduce the fat by using half-and-half instead of heavy cream, or reducing the cream and substituting milk.
Make it sugar-free with a sugar substitute, such as monk fruit.
Stir in chocolate chips or blend in baking cocoa for a mocha-inspired blend.
Use banana puree instead of half of the cream to reduce the fat content and add delicious flavor.
Make it plant-based, or vegan, by using ingredients such as coconut cream and oatmilk.
You can serve this coffee ice cream on its own, with whipped cream, or with cookies. You can make a float with cream soda, or add a scoop to hot or cold coffee. Enjoy it your way!
