Espresso Ice Cream with Dark Chocolate Ripples



2 litre(s)

Ice Cream

  • 500 g cream, full fat
  • 160 g caster sugar
  • 2 --- egg yolks
  • 1 tsp sea salt flakes
  • 1 1/2 tsp vanilla extract
  • 500 g pod poured coffee

Chocolate ripple mix

  • 200 g dark chocolate
  • 100 g Copha

Recipe's preparation

  1. Using a coffee pod machine (Nespresso etc) 'large' pour through 4-6 pods of your desired strength & flavour to make approximately 2 cups of liquid coffee. (I personally think the stronger coffee the better with this step!)


    Place all ingredients EXCEPT coffee mixture into bowl, and cook 7 min/80 degrees/ speed 4.

    Add coffee to cooked mixture and combine 20 sec/ speed 4.

    Pour Coffee Ice cream mixture into a shallow dish (so it freezes quicker!), cover and freeze for 4-6 hours until firm enough to cut/scoop out, but not frozen solid.

    Cut into chunks (or spoonful’s) about ice-cube size, and return to bowl.  Blend 30 sec/ speed 9 to soften, combine & aerate. 


    Place ice-cream mix into a pouring bowl/container in fridge or freezer for a few minutes so you can rinse & dry Thermomix bowl to make chocolate melt.


    In a clean/dry bowl, place broken chocolate, and chop 10 sec/ speed 6 to further break it up. Add Copha and heat 4 mins/ 50 degrees/ speed 1 or until melted and combined.


    To mix ice cream and chocolate into final freezing container, add ice cream about 1/3 of mix at a time, then cover that third with a thin layer of melted chocolate, quickly & gently folding through with a spoon to make a rippled effect as chocolate sets. Repeat with remaining mixture so chocolate is rippled throughout ice cream evenly.


    Return covered mixture to freezer and freeze for another 3-4 hours (or until desired frozen consistency is achieved) before serving.

*If you do not have a 'pod' style coffee machine, you can use instant or percolated as needed. Adjust coffee amount to taste.


**As you are adding around 1/2 a litre of 'water' (coffee) to this ice cream, it produces an 'icier' consistency than regular ice cream, rather than a 'creamier' one - it's delicious, and preferred in my household as it's almost a fresh frappe style ice-cream.


**You can skip making your own Chocolate melt mix and use store bought 'choc top' style topping if you are short on time or ingredients.
