Coffee ice cream may seem like the perfect treat, but consider consuming it in moderation. Along with caffeine, it provides excess sugar and fat. Caffeine content varies by recipe. Some commercial recipes use coffee flavorings rather than actual coffee. Recipes containing higher amounts of coffee typically contain more caffeine. Take this into consideration if you're consuming caffeine from other sources too.
