Easy Affogato Recipe

Posted on

This affogato recipe is a coffee lover’s dream: ice cream drowned in espresso! Use the traditional vanilla ice cream, or our homemade mocha almond fudge.

For this recipe, we partnered with one of our favorite coffee brands, illy (which we drink all the time!), to test out an illy Y5 Milk, Espresso & Coffee Machine. Not only does it make morning espresso a breeze, it’s perfect for an affogato. You can also make more than just espresso: it has a hot water dispenser for making tea, and new integrated milk frother for making fancy lattes and smooth cappuccinos. Basically, you can become your own barista!
