Ingredients

Adjust Servings:
1 cup black coffee, cooled
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 tablespoon vodka
1/16th teaspoon pure stevia powder see variations for a note on stevia
double cream or whipped cream to serve (optional)

Variations

*important note about stevia! – there are 4 types of stevia:
1. Pure Stevia Powder – looks like icing (powdered / confectioners) sugar. It’s expensive but a tiny amount goes a long long way. We’re talking 1/8 teaspoon to sweeten a whole cake. This is what I use.
2. Granular Stevia (like Natvia or Truvia) – looks like regular white sugar. It’s a blend of erythritol and stevia. Usually 1/4 teaspoon = 4-6 tablespoons granular stevia.
3. Fresh or Dried Stevia Leaves – from a real stevia plant! I haven’t baked with them but they will behave similar to the pure stevia powder. Just add to taste.
4. Liquid stevia. I haven’t used this. But add to taste.

sugar-lovers – use a little sugar or maple syrup to sweeten instead.

dairy-free – skip the cream or use whipped coconut cream.

alcohol-free – the vodka reakky helps prevent the ice crystals freezing in a whole block. If you want to omit the booze, stir more frequently with your fork.

chocolate chunk – stir in shaved chocolate with the ice crystals before serving.

Ever since having diabetes and commiting to Low Carb, I’ve been trying to figure out a way to make a really delicious Low Carb ice cream.

My biggest successes so far have come from pureeing frozen fruit with a little cream like this No-churn Cherry Ice Cream.

However this coffee granita has been my new favourite iced dessert. It takes ‘iced’ coffee to new heights.

I love the idea of granita where you actually encourage the ice crystals (like in a slushie) instead of always fighting against them as in ice cream.

Plus it couldn’t be easier to make, just pop everything in the freezer, stir a couple of times and you’re good to go.

If you’re sensitive to caffeine like I am, use decaf coffee and you’ll be able to enjoy this and still sleep like a baby.
