Mai hosted a lovely ice cream social event last Thursday. She made many yummy flavors (including chai masala, green tea, honey lavender and coffee oreo) and had cute serving glasses...both of which inspired me to 1) make more ice cream and 2) buy cute serving bowls.
My most favorite from her party was the coffee oreo ice cream. I normally don't like coffee flavored dessert all that much, but for some reason, it was love at first nom nom.
I was gonna say that I haven't had oreos in years, but then I remember that I probably had them in the pantry at work maybe a month ago.
I know Halloween is coming up shortly, but that doesn't stop me from indulging in whole milk and heavy cream. Princess Jasmine ate ice cream, right?
Nice and frothy!
Overflowing with coffee oreo ice cream
These are my new dishes/spoons from a store in Union Square. Ice cream for two! <3>
- 1 cup whole milk, well chilled
- 2/3 cups granulated sugar
- 2 tbsp. instant espresso or instant coffee
- 2 cups heavy cream, well chilled
- 1/2 tsp vanilla extract
- 1/2 tsp. chocolate extract* (or, just use 1 tsp. vanilla extract)
- 3/4 - 1 cup oreo cookie crumbles (depending on your taste preference)
In a medium bowl, mix the milk, granulated sugar and espresso powder with a hand mixer until the sugar and espress powder are dissolved, about 1-2 minutes on low speed.
Stir in the heavy cream and the vanilla.
Pour into the chilled ice cream maker. Prepare according to your ice cream maker's directions. I chilled mine for about 30 minutes. In the last 5 minutes of the chilling process, slowly sprinkle in the oreo cookie crumbles.
