Dark Chocolate Espresso Bean | Two Ingredient Ice Cream Super Hungry? Jump to the Recipe

If you like coffee AND ice cream, you'll love this combo. Plus, who doesn't like ice cream that tastes great and gets you a boost of energy? I see no downside.

Grab a can of sweetened condensed milk and two cups of heavy whipping cream.

Use a stand mixer on a medium-high speed to whip the cream into soft peaks.

Then just mix in the sweetened condensed milk.

Choose your toppings carefully - I used 2 teaspoons of coffee extract to really bring out the flavor. I found some bulk dark chocolate covered espresso beans at my local grocery store too. Be sure to check out your grocery store's bulk section to find great deals on fun toppings! I believe I spent .61 cents for all of the espresso beans seen here.

Use a sealable container to mix up the ice cream base with your toppings.

Then pop it into the freezer for 6-8 hours.

This one was definitely one of my favorites - packed a punch!
