Ideas for items to balance overly rich coffee ice cream.

I made Nigella Lawson's no churn coffee ice cream and although the flavor and texture is bang on, the richness of the ingredients ( double cream and condensed milk) leaves a buttery mouth feel. This is not a spoon in the tub ice cream but more of a tiny scoop on a dessert plate type ice cream. Challenge is what could be on the plate to complement that tiny scoop. Would love your ideas.

  1. Flourless chocolate cake would be a great choice for me.

      1. In a small bowl, topped with fresh raspberries and splash of kahlua.

          1. Angelfood cake

            A handful of toasted almonds

            Graham Cracker squares

            Vanilla wafer cookie (e.g., Nilla Wafers)

            Butter waffle cookie, Pazelle, or krumkake

            "Cigarette" cookies like this one
