Summer’s officially over – it was a hot one – but it doesn’t feel like it. Drinking hot coffee still seems to be overkill. So, I came up with a solution that wakes me up and cools me down. 

Ice cream! Helado! The strong and sweet flavors of cafe Cubano blended into light and airy ice cream.  The best part you do not need an ice cream maker! It’s only a few ingredients and you can your own touches like chocolate chips  to jazz it up even more. 

Cafe Cubano Ice Cream: Ingredients

  • ¾ cup prepared Cuban coffee, chilled 
  • 1 14 ounce can of oz sweetened condensed milk 
  • 2 cups heavy cream
