This café au lait ice cream is simple to make and perfect for a hot summer day. Can be served with a soft-serve texture or a firmer texture.
- 1 1/2 cups whole milk
- 1 1/2 cups heavy whipping cream
- 4 large egg yolks
- 2/3 cup granulated sugar
- Pinch of salt
- 1 NESCAFÉ DOLCE GUSTO Café Au Lait capsule, brewed according to package directions (6.1 fl. oz.)
- 1/3 cup NESTLÉ® TOLL HOUSE® Dark Chocolate Morsels, chopped (optional)
HEAT milk and heavy cream in medium saucepan over medium heat just until hot (do not boil). Remove from heat.
BEAT egg yolks, sugar and salt in large mixer bowl until well combined. Very slowly beat in the milk mixture until combined.
POUR mixture back into saucepan; heat over medium-low heat, stirring frequently, until the mixture reaches 160° F. This should take about 12 minutes. Do not boil. Stir in coffee. Place mixture in refrigerator for 1 hour or until cool.
POUR mixture into an ice cream maker and freeze according to manufacturer’s directions. During the last few minutes of churning, add the chopped morsels.
SERVE immediately for a soft-serve texture or transfer to a covered container and freeze for a firmer texture.
