Directions

  1. Blend all the ingredients together – if using sugar make sure it has melted into the coffee. Pour into a pyrex bowl and let it cool. Put in the freezer.
  2. Check the bowl every 20 minutes or so, scraping the ice crystals off the sides of the bowl until you end up with a sorbet of a fluffy snowy consistency – about 2 hours.

Chef Tips

Instead of using vanilla essence, if you have a vanilla pod, steep it in the hot coffee while it cools – at least 10 minutes. Remove it before freezing. Sweetening coffee is a personal thing. Use our recipe amounts as a suggestion only.
