Dairy-Free Coffee Float

Thank you for sharing!

Ok, so this recipe for Dairy-Free Coffee Float is borderline genius. I mean, coffee, creamer, whipped cream, chocolate ice cream...so many awesome things happening here, I just can't even...LOVE!

So, I’ve been having a lot of trouble lately going to sleep. That’s caused quite a bit of a stir in my household, as Mamma NEEDS her sleep. Unfortunately, I have also found a new obsession. A brand new yummy to keep me up at night. And I’m thinking that I need to move my little treat to breakfast in order to make sure I’m not up late with all the caffeine. Allow me to introduce to you the Dairy-Free Coffee Float that is sucking-up my sleepy-time hours and making me smile despite all that. Heh.

This all started with an experiment in chocolate ice cream making. Which is kind of unusual for me–I stick to the lighter flavors of my favorite frozen dessert. And I’m not one to go on a chocolate overload for any purpose, really, but for some reason, this is just something I felt like I NEEDED. So I gave it a shot.

I finally made some heavy-chocolatized ice cream that I was happy with, but then I accidentally dropped a big spoonful of it in a glass of half-day-old coffee I’d been warming and rewarming all afternoon, trying to get a cuppa in the day. Somehow, the loss of this spoonful of ice cream seemed like a tragedy at the time. Oh, man, how wrong was I?! Indignant that not a drop of this hard-won chocolate ice cream was going to go to waste, I scooped-up that spoonful and stuffed it in my mouth.

The flavor explosion was like a cold fire of awesome. My lovelies, if you make one recipe from this blog, you need to make this one. It’s perfection, truly and absolutely. I. Love. This. Coffee Float. End of story.

Allow me to introduce to you the Dairy-Free Coffee Float that is sucking-up my sleepy-time hours and making me smile despite all that. Heh.

Ingredients

  • Ice Cream
  • 2 cans coconut milk, refrigerated at least 2 hours
  • 1 tspn vanilla extract
  • 1/2 cup powdered sugar
  • 2 cups dairy-free chocolate chips
  • Creamer
  • 1/2 can coconut milk, refrigerated at least 2 hours
  • 1/4 tspn vanilla extract
  • 1 tblspn sugar
  • Whipped Cream
  • 1/2 can coconut milk, refrigerated at least 2 hours
  • 1/4 cup powdered sugar
  • 1/4 tspn vanilla extract
  • Your Favorite Coffee - 1 to 2 mugsful

Instructions

  1. Make the ice cream by opening your coconut milk cans and scoop the thick cream part into a bowl, trying to get as little of the coconut water as possible. Discard coconut water or just set aside for chugging later, whatever.
  2. Add the powdered sugar and vanilla.
  3. Mix on high 2-3 minutes with a hand mixer until it becomes stiff and fluffy.
  4. Place the chocolate chips into a microwave-safe bowl and pop into the microwave in 30-second increments until it's smooth when stirred.
  5. Add chocolate to the fluffy cream mixture.
  6. Fold-in until chocolate is consistent throughout.
  7. Place ice cream in the freezer for approximately 1 hour.
  8. Go ahead and make your favorite coffee, then place it in the fridge. You'll want at least 1 mugful, if not 3. Heh.
  9. When the ice cream is just about done, go ahead and make your creamer and whipped cream.
  10. I started with the creamer by opening your coconut milk cans and scoop the thick cream part into a bowl, trying to get as little of the coconut water as possible. Again, you may chug it later--its your coconut milk.
  11. Add your vanilla extract and sugar, stir together and set in the fridge.
  12. Make your whipped cream by repeating the same process with the other half of the coconut milk.
  13. Whip it for 2-3 minutes, until it's fluffy.
  14. Mix your desired amount of creamer into your coffee, placing a layer of whipped cream on top of that.
  15. Then, pull your ice cream out of the freezer and get you a big ole scoop of it.
  16. Gently place that on top.
  17. Begin consuming the most fabulous float you'll ever enjoy.
