Thai Iced Coffee Ice Cream

Thai Iced Coffee Ice Cream

Ice cream and coffee are two of my top five food groups, so naturally Thai Iced Coffee Ice Cream has been a longtime obsession of mine. Contrary to what you might think, making ice cream at home is super easy. If you have an ice cream machine and use the right fat ratio, you can make all sorts of flavors. From Thai Iced Coffee Ice Cream to Chocolate-Covered Pop Rock Vanilla (which I also actually made), you can get super creative. Vietnamese coffee ice cream is the best.

Thai Iced Coffee is one of my favorite drinks, and thinking about the fat content of sweetened condensed milk, I figured it would yield an awesome ice cream consistency. You may also refer to this preparation as “Vietnamese” iced coffee–but regardless, it’s delicious and this simple recipe yields a perfect consistency and richest flavor. I also drink way too much coffee in this life. From The Descendents to Marc Maron to Fry’s 100th cup on Futurama, the pop cultures icon of my life agree 2 agree about this beverage being the elixir of the gods. Eat all of the Vietnamese coffee ice cream.
