Coffee Ice Cream
1 can sweetened condensed milk
1 cup very strong coffee liquid
1/8 tsp. salt
1 tsp. vanilla
1 cup heavy cream, whipped stiff
1 egg white, stiffly beaten
Instructions:Mix the ingredients together in the order listed above and stir well. Freeze in a refrigerator tray until mushy or about 1 short hour. Scrape bottom and sides, and beat mixture until smooth. Return to refrigerator and freeze until firm, about 3 hours.
I have mixed the ingredients together and just left it in a wide tupperware dish in the freezer until frozen, without the extra beating and it was just fine. It has a smooth texture and you can vary the intensity of the flavor by how strong you make the coffee.
Notes:Personally, I like it strong and will make the coffee by mixing 1 cup of a good quality, freshly ground coffee with 1 cup of hot water and letting it steep for a few minutes. Then I strain out the coffee grounds with cheese cloth or a coffee filter.
