Vanilla Ice Cream Topped with Coffee

This is a dessert made of cold vanilla ice cream topped with cocoa powder and piping hot coffee (or espresso). Sweet ice cream and slightly bitter coffee go very well together.

Ingredients: 1 serving

Vanilla ice cream
3-4 tablespoons
Strong coffee (or espresso)
Cocoa powder
1 teaspoon


1. Arrange the ice cream in a bowl, and sprinkle on the cocoa powder. Pour hot coffee over the top, and it's done.
2. Enjoy the ice cream before it melts.
3. I used this ice cream.

Story Behind this Recipe

After enjoying some hot chocolate, I came up with this recipe. I've had this dessert before in fancy cafes or hotel lounges. Since it had cocoa powder on top then, I referred to a hot chocolate recipe to create this super delicious dessert made for adults.
