I scream you scream we all scream Vietnamese Coffee ICE CREAM!!!!

This is not a recipe of my own making, I came across this in a blog I like to read called Not quite Nigella( http://www.notquitenigella.com), which is a good read.

I love Vietnamese coffee (hot or cold), and when I came across this recipe I wondered to myself why I had never thought to turn this amazing sweet coffee into ice cream. I’ve made coffee ice cream before which has been successful , but this is a winner!!!!. I love the sweet  creaminess of the condensed milk balanced out with the slightly bitter coffee.

I love making ice cream but have to admit I rarely eat it, I usually have a taste then dish it up for hubby and kids. But in this instance I couldn’t help myself after taking the photos for this blog, I couldn’t possibly put it back in the freezer, lets just say that it wasn’t the healthiest  lunch that day 🙂 (maybe an extra walk for me this week).

This batch of ice cream didn’t last very long (at the hands of my family) so next time I make it, I will double the mix. When the kids sat up to their first bowl they all exclaimed “this is the best ice cream you have ever made” bless their little hearts I am pretty certain they say this every time I make a batch of ice cream, but on this occasion I think I have to agree with them.
