If you love coffee, then you will love this delicious Espresso Ice Cream. For an extra jolt add some dark chocolate!


  • 1 cup heavy cream
  • 2 cups whole milk, divided
  • 1 cup cup brewed espresso
  • 1 cup granulated sugar
  • 2 tbs cornstarch
  • pinch sea or kosher salt
  • 1 tbs liquid pectin


  1. In a medium saucepan, combine cream and 1½ cups of the milk. Set over medium/medium-low heat and bring to a simmer
  2. While cream/milk mixture is heating, put the remaining milk, espresso, sugar, cornstarch and salt into a small-medium mixing bowl. Whisk to combine
  3. Once milk/cream mixture comes to a simmer, add the milk/sugar mixture and stir until fully combined. While still set over medium/medium-low heat, stir continuously until mixture boils and thickens to where it can coat the back of a spoon (this will take about 15 minutes, depending on the stove being used).
  4. Remove pan from heat, stir in pectin, strain and cool to room temperature. Cover and refrigerate a minimum of at least 2 hours, or overnight. Whisk mixture together again before pouring into the ice cream maker.
  5. Pour the mixture into the mixing bowl of the Cuisinart® Ice Cream and Gelato Maker fitted with the gelato paddle. Turn unit on, set Timer and press Start. Let mix until thickened, about 40 minutes. The gelato will have a soft, creamy texture. If a firmer consistency is desired, transfer to an airtight container and place in freezer for about 2 hours
