Cuban Coffee Gelato with Mocha Chocolate Sauce

Posted on December 12, 2016

  A deliciously creamy Cuban Coffee flavoured Ice Cream, with Kahlúa® infused Chocolate Sauce. This Gelato is so smooth and delectably more-ish that you may want to keep it all to yourself! However, if you’re in the mood for sharing, we highly suggest serving this dessert after dinner with a freshly brewed cup of Cuban Coffee. Makes 8 single servings. (however this ice cream is so delicious you might need to make a double batch)


Cuban Coffee Gelato

• 2 cups Full Cream • 3/4 cup White Sugar • 2 cups strong Cuban Coffee from Coffee Capsules Direct • 1/2 teaspoon Vanilla Extract

Chocolate Sauce

• 1/2 cup unsweetened Cocoa Powder • 1 cup white Sugar • 2 cups Full Cream • 1 teaspoon Corn-starch • 1 tablespoon Butter • 1 tablespoon Kahlúa® Liqueur (For a non-alcohol option – Swop the Kahlua for 2 tablespoons of strong Cuban Coffee)


Cuban Coffee

1. Add 2-4 teaspoons of sugar to your espresso cup; depending on your taste. 2. Pour a short shot of espresso with the El Greeyo capsule in there and stir really well so it becomes a brown paste. 3. Since Cuban Coffee is quite strong, use an additional coffee capsule to pour a long shot in and stir until the sugar completely dissolves. 4. Repeat this process to prepare your second cup of Cuban Coffee.

Chocolate Sauce

1. Set stove top to medium heat. 2. Place the Cocoa Powder, Sugar, Cream and Corn-starch into a saucepan. 3. Stir constantly until the mixture is smooth and thick. 4. Remove the pan from heat and stir in the butter and Kahlúa® or Coffee Alternative. Serve warm over Cuban Coffee Ice Cream.
