The name “Matcha (latte) affogato” sounds so exotic right? But it’s pretty simple and easy to make. Just some good quality matcha and some ice cream yield a beautiful dessert. Matcha (latte) affogato is a refreshingly light dessert, and we loved it.
Since we could not share the regular affogato with the kiddo, matcha affogato was our solution.
We did have doubts, but to our surprise, he enjoyed matcha affogato.
I swapped matcha tea with a latte to make it rich and more delicious. You could use homemade ice cream to make it more healthy.
This recipe was supposed to go up for International tea day on the 21st of May, but I am a little late. I love tea and use different kinds of tea in my cooking. I love it’s aroma and taste. There is something about this ingredient that inspires me to create recipes with it. I get transported to my childhood days in a tea estate in Assam.
The creamy vanilla ice cream mixed with the matcha latte creates a unique taste that is difficult to explain. However, I am making it again soon.
I hope you try out this dessert during this summer and get transported to a tea garden.
