A simple and delicious dirty chai latte inspired ice cream. Made with cold brew, or your leftover cup of (now cold) coffee, and coconut milk mixed with the yummy warmth of chai spices! It's so thick and creamy you won't even realize it's missing dairy!
It's official, fall has fallen upon us once again. It feels natural to start decorating your house with all your fall decor and whipping out the PSL's or chai spiced drinks come September 1st.
If you're anything like us and still sweating from this summer heat that seems to have made it's way into fall, we got you covered with a delciously cool (we don't need more heat!) dirty chai latte ice cream recipe.
Do we wish we were tucked under a bunch of blankets with a hot chai latte in our hands? Yes, yes we do. But in the spirit of change, and trying to speak it into our existance, we must adapt. So until the brisk and cozy fall weather starts kicking in, we'll enjoy all the fall delicacies in the form of ice cream.
This dirty chai latte tastes exactly like the real thing. We might even prefer it just a little bit more, in ice cream form. It's creamy, sweet and spicy. The best part? For this recipe, you can use several household ingredients and spices. Oh and for the coffee, don't you dare pour out that old pot of joe that's been sitting on our counter since you left for work this morning! For the first time ever, you're going to need that old coffee for this recipe. Or some cold brew, whatever floats your boat... or churns your ice cream? Not sure.
You're also going to need a high speed blender and an ice cream machine. Churning non-dairy ice cream is crucial!
Now, let's get into the fun stuff!
Set your churning bowl in the freezer the night before to chill. Soak your cashews the night before as well, or for at least 4-6 hour before blending.
- Once properly soaked, drain your cashews and add them to a high speed blender, along with the Amoretti Madagascar Bourbon Vanilla Extract (2X), Amoretti "Chai Tea" Extract and all other ingredients.
- Blend until the consistentcy is creamy and smooth. You want no cashews left behind.
- Add your mixture to the churning bowl and churn for about 30-45 minutes. Consistency should resemble that of a thick soft serve.
- Once churned, transfer to a freezer safe container and freeze until hard. Roughly 6 hours.
- When you're ready, take out of the freezer and serve in ice cream cones or a bowl.
