Coffee or dessert?... Why not have both?!

Can’t decide what to have after you meal? You fancy something sweet, but you REALLY need that coffee hit? An affogatto may be the answer to your problem!

What IS an affogato I hear you say? Affogato is an Italian coffee dessert. The full name is really “affogato al cafe” or “drowned in coffee,” in Italian.  It is made up of a scoop of vanilla ice cream and a shot of espresso poured over.  And believe us when we say… it is absolutely divine. 

So simple yet so good, our kind of dessert.

Affogato Recipe:
Pour a shot of espresso (or 1/4 cup of strong coffee if you don’t have an espresso maker) over a scoop of vanilla ice cream.
And that’s it!

You can add flavours to suit, such as ground vanilla, sprinkles (for the young at heart) or one shot of liqueur (Kahlua works well).
Affogato is always on the menu at Reality Bites, so why not treat yourself to something a little different this summer.
