Some of you at this very moment are wondering what the heck is an affogato. After all, isn’t Savory Sweet Life all about everyday recipes? Coffee lovers rejoice! You’re in for a wonderful treat. Affogato is an Italian coffee dessert made up of a scoop of vanilla ice cream and a shot of espresso poured over. And let me tell you… it is absolutely divine. So simple yet so good.. my kind of dessert. If you don’t have an espresso maker, strong coffee works too. Either way you have it, affogato is one of life’s greatest pleasures. Enjoy!
Pour a shot of espresso (or 1/4 cup of strong coffee) over a scoop of vanilla ice cream.
