French Vanilla Ice Cream Vs Vanilla Ice Cream
It is normal to wonder what is the difference between french vanilla ice cream and regular vanilla ice cream if you have never heard of french vanilla ice cream before.
French vanilla ice cream and regular vanilla ice cream taste quite different though they both are simple, flavored ice creams using vanilla.
The difference is that french vanilla ice cream tastes more rich & creamy in flavor with a pale yellow color while regular vanilla ice cream almost looks white.
The french vanilla ice cream is more creamier in texture and looks more yellowish in color because of the use of more egg yolks in the ingredients!
So, basically the french vanilla is more enriched vanilla ice cream, in my opinion, and it tastes amazing!
In fact, french vanilla ice cream is one of the most favorite ice cream because of the unique texture and flavor!
instant iced coffee vs cold brewed coffee
We use instant coffee powder to make this instant iced coffee latte with french vanilla ice cream.
It is super easy and quick to make instant iced coffee or hot coffee drinks using instant coffee powder.
Alternatively, you can also use cold brewed coffee to make this iced coffee latte.
If you have cold brewed coffee, chill it in the refrigerator and then just blend it in the blender along with french vanilla ice cream and you may just use two tablespoons of heavy cream instead of milk or just replace the ice cream and milk with two tablespoons of french vanilla coffee creamer whichever way you prefer!
