summer idea 03 :: affogato

29 July 2014

As I said, these summer ideas are not, I repeat not, recipes. E's youngest nephew could probably make this. But it's something that you may not know of, or not thought of for a while, so why not plant the seed?

Affogato is an Italian drink/dessert that involves vanilla ice cream and espresso. Already sounds good, right?

I just love this. 3 steps:

1) Brew a nice espresso.
2) Scoop some vanilla ice cream into a glass or bowl.
3) Pour espresso over ice cream.

Eat straight away - the ice cream will immediately start melting, but in a really, really good way. Trust me on this.

If you're feeling indulgent (me, always), crumble a chocolate cookie on top. We got given some quadruple chocolate cookies recently and they took over my life for a while.

As has this.


  1. I don't think I've actually ever tried this and it sounds amazing ... one for the weekend I think :D

  2. Omg I'm so gonna do that :D thanks Xx

  3. oh my gosh that looks so amazingly good!

  4. Daaaaamn! I'm not even a coffee fan and that looks delicious to me. I'm a fan of the extra cookie. Love your leaf-shaped bowl too, so pretty! xx

  5. The presentation of this is so lovely - such a simple idea but one I pretty much never think to do it!
