I love to prepare delicious things that take very little effort. I imagine that is the dream of many home chefs, to produce the gourmet taste without too much effort. Lucky for a lazy chef like me, that is possible! When you combine ingredients of a good quality with a little creativity, anything is possible. In this case, a few shortcuts come into play and the results are not too shabby!
My Lazy Affogato Recipe is incredible. It combines 3 of my favorite things for a ready in a flash dessert that brings a taste of Italy to your kitchen.
4 ounces of cold water
1 tablespoon of instant coffee
4 scoops of Vanilla Ice Cream
Combine instant coffee and cold water, blend and allow to sit for a few moments.
Place one scoop of vanilla ice cream into a parfait glass
Pour one ounce of the cold coffee over the ice cream
Drizzle chocolate syrup lightly onto the ice cream
Add another scoop of ice cream
Pour one ounce of cold coffee over the ice cream
Drizzle with chocolate syrup
Repeat with one additional parfait glass to create 2 servings
This is such an easy way to make a super fancy treat that will impress your friends and family! I make affogato in several ways, from the lazy way to cold brewing coffee earlier in the day and shaving fine chocolate. As the summer rolls on I will likely share a few other Affogato recipes with you!
