The Best Matcha Affogato You'll Try. Quick + Easy Recipe for Dessert!

Matcha Affogato - The Ultimate Summer Time Recipe

Our friends at Upstar Ice Cream shared with us this amazing recipe they made with our organic culinary matcha! We absolutely adore how easy and quick it is, and how it's a modern twist on a classic that you and your friends will love. Enjoy! 

Warm, emerald green matcha meets cool vanilla ice cream for a verdant take on traditional affogato.


You may have heard of the traditional affogato, where espresso is poured over vanilla ice cream. Well, we are taking that to another level with our signature Mizuba Matcha Infused Affogato.


We had Mizuba in our cabinet and we have UpStar ice cream, so of course, our first thought was MATCHA AFFOGATO! We couldn’t resist this creamy green goodness.


The trick to good matcha is to keep if from clumping, so be sure to add just a little bit of water at first, and blend to form a paste. Use a small metal whisk to ensure you have removed all clumps. For the best results make sure you source high-quality matcha that's bright green and fresh. Mizuba Tea Co is a great local company that sources high-quality pure Matcha! 

Ingredients

Instructions

  1. Pour matcha in a small bowl. Add a few drops of hot water and whisk to form a paste. After all clumps are removed, gradually add the rest of the hot water, whisking until smooth.
  2. Scoop ice cream into a separate bowl for eating
  3. Pour matcha over ice cream and serve

Hope you enjoy this delicious and photo-worthy dessert :)
