“I scream, you scream, we all scream for ice cream!”
Sorry, we couldn’t resist, but this little dessert has us wanting to shout from the rooftops! Here at Flavor Nation, this is one of our absolute favorites.
Now, you may be wondering why we love this affogato so much. After all, this is a classic dessert that really isn’t that exciting. Typically, it is made up of two ingredients: Vanilla ice cream and a shot of espresso.
Sometimes, it is the simplest recipes that have the most potential, and that is what we love about this dessert: The potential.
Because this little chilled treat is so basic in nature, it leaves plenty of room for you to experiment and let your imagination run wild.
Here at Crazy Cups, we have over 99 different flavors for you to choose from, and the number of ice cream flavors available on the market is limitless. This means there is no end to the number of flavored coffee and ice cream combinations!
We also trade the traditional espresso shot for a full cup of coffee (because less is not always more), and we like to get creative with our toppings.
Below you will find a recipe for an Easy Hazelnut Cold Brew Affogato using the Crazy Cups Hazelnut Ground Coffee. This is a good combination, to begin with.
This beverage can also be made with any flavor or method of coffee your heart desires. This includes using the iced coffee method or cold brew method to make your brew. Serve your affogato up with caffeinated or decaf coffee, depending on your mood.
Follow this simple recipe below, using your favorite coffee and ice cream combination. Perhaps try a Frosted Oatmeal Cookie Coffee over Rocky Road ice cream with Oreos on top. Or, try Maple French Toast Coffee poured over Strawberry ice cream and topped with real strawberries.
Let your imagination take you to new places with the affogato and share your concoctions with us on Instagram. We can’t wait to see what you come up with!
