Author Notes: One of the few indulgences that my husband I would have was a carton of Starbucks mocha chip ice cream. But then my husband entered grad school and there were little if any indulgences with our salaries. So I improvised and created my own mocha ice cream for a few less dollars. And we've never purchased a Starbucks carton since.The Constant Gardener
