Recipe: Vanilla Coconut Affogato

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.
