All you need is your handy immersion blender to make this decadent affogato dessert. 

An affogato is Italy’s version of a very upgraded iced latte. The coffee-based dessert is typically made with hot espresso poured over ice-cold gelato. It may even have a shot of liqueur, like amaretto, thrown in the mix. 

This version is a lot less boozy, a little less rich in fats and made out of “n’ice cream” — ice cream made from fruit. But it’s still just as layered and delicious. 


  • Frozen bananas
  • Heavy cream
  • Sugar
  • Vanilla
  • Whole milk
  • Espresso
  • Optional: chocolate syrup
  • Optional: frozen berries

1. Make n’ice cream with frozen bananas by adding milk to chopped frozen bananas and blending until smooth. 

Optional: Add your favorite frozen fruit to the mix like raspberries or strawberries. 

2. Make whipped cream by Mixing heavy cream, sugar and vanilla extract in a bowl. Then blend together until it’s nice and fluffy. 

3. Make frothed milk by heating the whole milk in a saucepan on the stovetop until it is steaming — not boiling. Then use the emersion blender to blend until it’s frothy. 

4. Brew a shot or two of espresso and pour the frothed milk over the espresso.

5. Finally, pour the espresso with frothy milk over the n’ice cream. Add a scoop of your homemade whipped cream. You can top the affogato with chocolate syrup or more banana slices. Enjoy with a spoon or straw.
