The Easy Affogato

Affogato is the ideal dessert when you don’t have anything for dessert! It is originally from Italy and requires only two ingredients; fresh coffee and vanilla ice-cream, mixed at the time of serving.

It can’t get any easier than that!

Aside from being easy and delicious it is versatile because it can be dairy-free, gluten-free or even decaf, depending on your choice of ice-cream and coffee.

What to look for in a good vanilla ice-cream? The colour must be pale-yellow, almost white, and you must be able to see little brown spots (the vanilla bean seeds). If you can afford it, don’t buy cheap alternatives.

Ideally the coffee must be made with a coffee machine or a coffee maker. Avoid using instant coffee.

The ice cream acts as the sweetener so no need for extra sugar.
