There is a reason that blended coffee drinks are so popular. You can get your caffeine and have a frozen beverage to beat the summer heat! But you don't have to hit a coffee shop when you want your coffee fix. There are many ways that coffee can be included in frozen desserts or ice cream beverages without leaving the house.
One of my favorite ways to use coffee is to make a granita. Granita is an Italian ice dessert that you can put together easily, no matter how much of a cooking novice you are. I love simple, clean recipes that only use a few ingredients. You can't get much simpler than my coffee granita recipe -- it only has three ingredients!
If you are looking for something different, you can always make a coffee ice cream with an espresso brittle swirl. How good does that sound? Any coffee lover with a sweet tooth is sure to love a creative frozen coffee dessert like that one.
