Okay! So we did the whole traditional affogato thing yesterday.
Now we’re dipping into…slightly unconventional territory.
It’s kind of funny that I’m sharing a week of affogato recipes tbh. I cannot scoop a perfect scoop of ice cream to save my life.
Apparently very. Because I was a hot mess during this affogato photoshoot trying to get my ice cream to form perfectly photo-ready balls. I tried scooping it straight from the container, then I let it soften and dumped it all into a loaf pan, thinking it would be easier to scoop. Oh no. It made matters worse.
SO although it looks like we’re dumping matcha on top of an ice cream blob, please know that the effort was made.
And please know the flavors are equivalent to the “raised hands” emoji.
This Vegan Matcha Affogato was definitely was my favorite of the four affogati I’m sharing with you this week.
The flavor of Matcha is rather…grassy. There’s really no pleasant way to say that. But when it’s paired with a vanilla bean ice cream/gelato, I swear it’s like magic.
It becomes this rich, sweet, totally devourable mixture, and I honestly couldn’t get enough of it. It’s almost sweet and a bit savory if that makes sense. I know that sounds weird, but I promise you it’s perfect.
And then with the sesame seed sprinkles on top! So cute, right? Plus, that little extra crunch is everything.
I hope you enjoy, friends!
