I’ve used espresso in a chocolate pudding before, it’s a great way to add strong flavor without adding calories, and fats. For today’s recipe, I think it’s time to talk about espresso in depth.

What is Espresso

It’s a fine ground from of coffee. It can be a one kind of beans, or a blend of some. It comes medium or dark roasted. Mainly espresso refers the way it’s made. The machine force water through the basket of fine beans at very high pressure. I really used to hate it! I could barley have a single shot, until my parents got a machine at home. And my sister encouraged me to join the club. Now I can drink it plain with no milk. I can swear it’s aroma heals the soul, and it’s rich taste instantly improve the mood.

Not all espresso alike, some brands are really bitter and strong! My absolute favorites are Davidoff, and Lavazza . And for a stronger taste try illy. And this is the most wanted machine at home, and it’s the same one my parents have, and I highly recommend it. 

Does espresso has more caffeine than drip coffee ?

If we are comparing ounce to an ounce, espresso has 40 mg caffeine whereas the brewed coffee or drip coffee has 10 mg in an ounce. But then we usually tend to drink more volume of drip coffee than espresso. There is a deceiving feeling that because espresso tastes stronger it does have more caffeine in serving size.

I wasn’t really fond of ice cream until I got married,  my husband is obsessed with it. I remember once we had an ice cream maker, while it’s do the work for you, you still need the perfect recipe. And since we no longer had it, i thought we can still enjoy a homemade ice cream. My first trial to make it at home when I tested a recipe form fellow food blogger, and it was great success. and i tired other flavors like cherry!

But this recipe is different. It’s a healthier version of homemade ice cream. No eggs, no heavy cream, or condensed milk. And with only four ingredients, this can be your base for many flavors. 

A creamy luscious and aromatic espresso no churn ice cream. It's easy to make, naturally sweetened, gluten free, and vegan too!
