Method

  1. Several hours in advance, lay ice cream on a freezer-proof tray and put the tray back in the freezer.
  2. To serve, put balls of ice cream into 6 small glasses or bowls, and pour a shot of hot espresso coffee over each. Serve straight away, stirring the vanilla ice cream into the hot coffee so that it melts a little.

This didn't work for me. I love coffee, but not cold coffee!

This is a wonderful way to serve ice cream and makes an excellent diabetes friendly dessert if you use quality ice cream. Although not exactly a recipe a great idea!

This is one of my favorite desserts; I've introduced many people to the wonderful simplicity of the combo of good coffee and good ice cream. I've tried this dessert with flavored ice creams but feel the best combination is this one.
