Gelato Affogato (“Drowned” Ice Cream)

on May 27, 2010

An affogato (“drowned”) is a coffee-based beverage or dessert. It usually takes the form of a scoop of vanilla gelato or ice cream topped with hot espresso coffee. This recipe will use coffee flavored ice cream and rum as well. If you don’t like coffee ice cream you can use vanilla or chocolate or any other flavor you like. If you are watching calories you can even use low-fat ice cream. Either way this is a unique Italian dessert. Coffee and dessert all in one! Saves time! If you want you can even add whipped cream to top it off! So much for low cal! This version of the recipe also has dark rum for an extra special treat.


About 2 pints coffee (or other flavor) premium ice cream

1 cup hot espresso

3 tablespoons dark rum


1. Scoop the ice cream into six small coffee cups or goblets.

2. Stir together the hot coffee and rum. Slowly pour the coffee over the ice cream.

Serve immediately

Serves 6
