Coffee Chocolate Gelato. Something I never thought of making myself until I got the Cuisinart ICE-100 Compressor Ice Cream and Gelato Maker. Besides the regular ice cream paddle, it has a gelato paddle specially designed to incorporate less air into the gelato; less air is one of the differences between gelato and ice cream.
But these days I just make small batches and so appreciate the just-plug-it-in convenience of the compressor unit. No rock salt. No ice. No insert bowl that needs to be frozen for 24 hours. It's so easy! And Cuisinart is going to send one to one of YOU!
I've posted lots of ice creams, including Chocolate Ice Cream, Vegan Chocolate Ice Cream and Chocolate Frozen Yogurt.
Mr Delightful says this recipe is "the perfect balance of chocolate and coffee; I can taste both." What is your favorite ice cream, gelato, frozen yogurt, sorbet or non-dairy frozen dessert?
Chocolate Coffee Gelato
1/3 cup (2.67 fluid ounces/79 ml) boiling water
1 3/4 cups (14 fluid ounces/414 ml) milk (I use 2%)
2/3 cup (4.67 ounces/132 grams) sugar
1/4 cup (0.75 ounce/21 grams) natural unsweetened cocoa powder*
3 tablespoons (27 grams) non-GMO cornstarch
1/8 teaspoon salt
3/4 cup (6 fluid ounces/177 ml) heavy cream
1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
* Directions said to set for 40 minutes, but I found my chilled mixture took only 30 minutes. So I would suggest checking it every 5 minutes after the first 20 minutes or so, at least when making a new recipe the first time.
