Disclaimer: I dislike coffee!
But I knew I wanted some coffee recipes in my upcoming cookbook for all you strange coffee-loving people, so I took one for the team and came up with this one. Even to this non-coffee drinker, it’s not bad at all. If you like coffee it’ll probably be great (I’m hoping).
The key (which my little sister informed me of) is to use real coffee as your flavor base – not instant coffee granules. She is totally right.
I used my favorite LorAnn flavor oil – Chocolate Hazelnut – to give this Java Chip Freeze a cool flavor, but if you don’t have that, a) go to your nearest cake-decorating store and get some, b) order some online, or c) just use your favorite flavoring. Just make sure it’s a flavor that pairs well with coffee. I wouldn’t suggest banana, or something like that.
