This Salted Caramel Affogato combines espresso with one of my favorite after dinner treats: ice cream. It’s the perfect way to end any meal!
Have you ever tried affogato?
Affogato is Italian for “drowned.” It’s a scoop of ice cream topped with a shot of hot espresso.
This delicious after drink / dessert is sweet, creamy, and so delicious … the salted caramel flavor puts this classic drink over the top! You’re going to love it, and best of all, it’s so easy to make.
Salted Caramel Affogato
I was inspired to create this sweet treat after attending a fun event introducing the new Ninja Coffee Bar.
Look who I met there!
Sofia Vergara was just as sweet and funny as your might imagine!
Ninja partnered with Sofia, who’s from Columbia and a major coffee aficionado, to help develop the Ninja Coffe Bar.
After the event, they sent me a Coffee Bar to try out. And I’ve been obsessed ever since!
In addition to regular coffee and iced coffee, the Ninja Coffee Bar also makes Specialty Brew, a highly concentrated coffee that’s similar to espresso. You can use it to create coffeehouse-style hot and cold layered beverages … right at home.
I used the Specialty Brew feature to create this Caramel Affogato.
How to Make Caramel Affogato
This delicious dessert drink could not be easier to create!
Simply make a batch of the Specialty Brew using the Ninja Coffee Bar (or substitute espresso or strong coffee), then mix it with salted caramel syrup.
Place a scoop of vanilla ice cream in a small coffee mug. Then pour the flavored coffee over the ice cream. A sprinkle of salt is the perfect finishing touch and enhances the sweet-salty flavor.
