Recipe: Vanilla Coconut Affogato

by JJ Virgin on September 29, 2017

There’s something almost magical about the way an affogato blends hot and cold, dessert and coffee, bitter and sweet…

This version is made healthier by a shot of protein and the use of unsweetened coconut ice cream. Both will help boost your fat-burning potential, while keeping the sugar impact low.

You can buy the ice cream or make your own – the recipe is below. And if you want your affogato after dinner, be sure to swap out the espresso for strong decaf coffee so you aren’t lying awake at 2 AM!

Vanilla Coconut Affogato joins Meatballs in Tomato Sauce; Minestrone Soup; and Roasted Eggplant with Fresh Basil Vinaigrette in our Family Italian Supper menu.
