Frosty Mocha Drink

What a great afternoon pick-me-up! Sweet, chocolately, just the right amount of coffee, and nice and cold. (Much like a Wendy’s Frosty)

Mocha Parfaits

Rich, creamy and very flavorful. The family won’t even know they are eating healthy cottage cheese ! So much healthier than sugar laden puddings, ice creams, etc.

Coffee Soft Serve Ice Cream – NO ICE CREAM MAKER NECESSARY

It is amazing how creamy of a product this turns out considering there is no ice cream maker involved. I’ve made it many times, always with good results. It’s well worth the calories 🙂

12 ½ c servings
299 calories per serving

½ c whole milk
1 T vanilla
2 T instant coffee powder
1 can sweetened condensed milk
1/8 t salt
2 c heavy cream

Stir milk and coffee together so coffee dissolves than add vanilla, condensed milk and salt. Beat heavy cream to stiff peaks (but don’t over beat or the cream will begin to break down) and then fold into the milk mix. Folding is just a method to mix things a little gentler than stirring. You just keep inserting a spatula or spoon UNDER the ingredients and left or fold them up on top – keep repeating to fully incorporate the ingredients. Pour into a shallow 1 ½ quart METAL (because it conducts the cold better) bowl and freeze the mix 4 hours, stirring once halfway through.

If you keep this in the freezer for more than a day, it will get very hard and you need to let it sit a few minutes before scooping out servings.

Cappuccino Pops

These take a little work to get out of the molds, so let sit a bit before trying to unmold or you may end up with just the stick in your hands 🙂 Or try using the Dixie cup method which you can more easily peel off the dessert. The ice cream separates into 2 different layers so you end up with a great looking 3 layer pop that tastes just divine.
