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 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 Estrela 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.

Cuban Coffee Gelato:

  1. Pre-freeze your ice cream maker bowl over night.
  2. Place the cream and sugar in a sauce pan and bring it to boiling point.
  3. Remove from heat and stir in the coffee and vanilla using a spatula.
  4. Cool mixture to room temperature before refrigerating for 1 hour.
  5. Pour into ice cream maker and freeze.

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.
