So those who love their coffee with a bit of a twist, but also want to live a healthy lifestyle, don’t have to compromise. They’re versatile and tasty. Use them to make anything from a pumpkin spice caramel macchiato to a caramel hazelnut macchiato and everything in between.
What If I Don’t Have An Ice Cream Machine?
You can still enjoy your homemade caramel macchiato ice cream - getting there is just a bit more hard work.
- Mix 2 cups of heavy whipping cream, 2 cups of half-and-half cream, 1 cup of sugar, 2 shots of strongly-brewed Caramel Macchiato coffee, and 2 teaspoons of vanilla extract.
- Put the mixture into a pre-frozen stainless steel metal bowl and put it into the freezer for 30 minutes or until the edges start to freeze.
- Take out the mixture and beat with a hand mixer. Set it straight back into the freezer for another 30 minutes.
- Continue this process until your caramel macchiato ice cream is firmly frozen, with a smooth and creamy texture. This should take around 4 to 5 mixes.
- Store in a covered freezer container until you’re ready to serve it.
As an optional tip, you can add a pinch of sea or kosher salt to turn your drink into a salted caramel macchiato which is also perfect for ice cream.
