Homemade Coffee Ice-cream and it’s fructose free! 

Homemade Coffee Ice Cream

Fructose Free Coffee Ice-cream

and it’s homemade!

Although she’s not sponsoring this post, I do need to thank Aunty Jill for the Cusinart ice-cream maker I got for Christmas. We all know that kitchen appliances come and go, right? BUT this one is seriously getting a workout during the summer heatwave we’re having and I am putting my re-found ice-cream addiction out there.

It’s really the perfect cool-off treat in summer isn’t it? And just a wee bit indulgent too …

There’s something about homemade anything that smacks of goodness and ice-cream that’s made in your kitchen, and not in a factory, just tastes SO much better. No added nasties, there’s just what you want to put in and the potential flavours are only limited by imagination. If you’re a frozen yoghurt, gelato or sorbet fan too, then this is a gadget worth playing with ;)

Because I’m being conscious of my sugar (fructose) intake, I’ve been able to modify recipes (well kind of just make them up) and all of the half dozen batches so far have been winners. As you’ll know I’m no star in the kitchen, so to me this is a really big deal!

I’ve always been a sucker for coffee flavoured ice-cream and so I thought I’d share tonight’s coffee ice-cream adventure with you. I’ve created this little masterpiece with what I had on hand and the taste test has been conclusive – it’s DELICIOUS!


1 x 600ml cream

1 x tin evaporated milk (which I had refrigerated overnight)

milk (I filled the tin to rinse it – that’s such a lazy measurement isn’t it?)

2 tablespoons Bushells coffee and chicory essence (in the tea/coffee aisle)

1/2 cup dextrose (glucose powder – it’s a fructose free sweetner) – as it’s not as sweet as sugar, you can use regular sugar but I’d go for less


Lightly whisk all ingredients together

Tip into ice-cream maker and churn for approx 30 mins

Serve immediately as soft serve or send it to the freezer for a firmer ice-cream later on

Do you ever make ice-cream at home? What’s your all time favourite ice-cream flavour, I’d love you to throw some suggestions my way to try!

Homemade coffee ice-cream – it’s a fructose free winner!

    Oh lucky you to have an icecream maker! It would work well in our household too since its perpetually summer here in Singapore haha

  3. Amanda @ Cooker and a Looker Says:

    Sounds delicious, especially given the temperatures around here this week! I’ve been lusting after an icecream maker for a while, but I’m not sure I should try to fit anything else into my already filled-to-bursting kitchen cupboards.


  4. Rachel @ The Kids Are All Right Says:

    I got a Cuisinart ice cream maker for Christmas too! I always wanted one but never bought it because I thought I’d just eat ice cream for breakfast, lunch and dinner. I’ve been too busy to handwash the bowl before freezing so I’m yet to even make a batch, though I bought all the ingredients. Hope the cream hasn’t gone off in the fridge. Thanks for the tip about the dextrose – I’ll give that a go.


  5. Bree @ Twinkle in the Eye Says:

    Oh well done! So going there :0)


  6. Sis Says:

    And I can vouch for this one, I had some last week- YUMMMMM!!

  7. Jodi @mummyhood101 Says:

    I have wanted an ice cream make for sooooo long. Just need to bite the bullet and buy one!! The kids would love me for it! :)


  8. Emily Says:

    YUMMO – I’m really going to have to get my act together in the kitchen soon, my boys are growing and eating at an alarming rate :)


  9. rhian @melbs Says:

    Oh yum, I just watched Nigella Lawson do a very similar recipe last night, they both look delicious.
    Popped over from FYBF.


  10. Tracey @ Bliss Amongst Chaos Says:

    I have a Cuisinart machine too, but I hardly ever use it! That’s crazy in this hot weather we’re having!
    I need to find some nice sugar free recipes too. Unfortunately, although I have coffee from time to time, it’s not my favourite flavour.

    I might go and see what I’ve got in the pantry now actually! I know I’ve got plenty of dextrose as I just stocked up on it! :)


  11. Rachel from Redcliffe Style Says:

    YUM!!!! This looks awesome. I must try this. Rachel xx


  12. Sabeen @Mumchic Says:

    Ooooh, delish! I totally agree with you about home made stuff! I’m not a big fan of the coffee flavour but I guess you could switch that part to cocoa or something?
    Thanks for sharing! I need to get me an ice-cream maker!


  15. Seana Smith Says:

    Aha, that sounds so easy. I have an ice cream maker which is a winner. On my blog though is such an easy ice cream, raspberry in that version, which doesn’t need mixed and that’s been out fave. But I love this simple stir and churn idea.


  16. Deb @ Home life simplified Says:

    Thanks this looks fab. I am lactose free as well as cutting out sugar / fructose so was determined to work with hubby to create a new ice cream this summer (he is our resident ice cream maker user – we have an attachment with our mixer). will work form this as a starting point and try with coconut cream etc
