If you follow me on Instagram you are well aware of my love for my Nespresso machine. My husband and I often pack up our Essenza mini for holidays so that we can enjoy delicious, easy to make esspressos and lattes on the road, while our VertuoPlus is our go to for making our favorite coffee drinks at home. It doesn’t take long to get used to the ease of making drinks in the morning that’s for sure. Today I am super excited to share with you how to make an affogato.

How to Make an Affogato | Easy steps for making this coffee dessert recipe

Just a few easy steps and you will be on your way to discovering your new favorite coffee dessert recipe. A few years ago I was introduced to affogato’s from a local coffee shop that my friend worked at. She highly recommended that I tried it, knowing very well that I’d love it. At the time we didn’t own our Nespresso so it was aways something that I would treat myself to on occasion to this local coffee shop. Recently, while browsing Nespresso’s website for new recipe’s to try I came across their Coconut Icecream Affogato Recipe  — thinking “Why the heck have I not thought to make an Affogato with my Nespresso yet?!”

Nespresso recently launched their Limited Edition Italian Inspired Iced Coffees, which I felt would pair perfectly with this affogato recipe. Both flavours, Salentina and Ispirazione
Shakerato, are available on both the Original and VertuoPlus systems and designed to be enjoyed over ice — or in this case, icecream! Perfect for us as we can enjoy on vacation with our Essenza Mini or at home with our VertuoPlus. You can choose, Ispirazione Salentina with it’s smooth and bold yet balanced or go for the powerful Ispirazione Shakerato
dark cocoa aromas.

Let’s get to it shall we, who’s just drooling over the though of this easy coffee dessert recipe — “I am, I am!”

  • Just about to head to Whistler with this guy and so excited to spend some time just the two of us! It’s been a whhhiiilllleeeeeee
  • Part way through our lunch the kids started to bicker back and forth, creating a rather not-so-enjoyable moment for everyone. It's those moments that us as parents can make a difference, how we handle situations with our children allows them to learn and grow through our words and actions. We spoke about the importance of being kind and how much more enjoyable our time together is when we are all speaking respectfully and sharing. .

I then shared with the kids that that was exactly why I was taking a few pictures with our pizza, to share with others about the launch of @panago_pizza's 2nd annual Bullying Awareness and Prevention campaign. That Panago wanted to celebrate young people who are being kind and looking out for others in their communities. Our kids are learning everyday, it's our job to be great role models, encourage their kind behaviour and then celebrate them in their good choices. .

Do you want to take a minute to celebrate a child in your life? From now until Nov 25th Panago is asking for you to nominate a deserving youth and share a story them using compassion to drive change. Go to my stories for more info and the link to nominate #sponsored #asliceofnice
  • Hey 👋🏻 it’s kinda late... for some I suppose.. I’m usually up til midnight working away and wanted to hop on and share about my blog/small business journey. It was the start of this year that I really “proclaimed” this as my business and really felt so proud of what I’d created. It’s been A LOT of work to say the least but it’s brought so so much joy, opportunities and relationships. I love creating and sharing here, but most of all I love encouraging and connecting with YOU! Thanks for being here and for reading this. I think today I all the sudden realized we were in November and the end of the year is near. How did that happen?! If you made it through this little love note, share something about you below.. maybe how you discovered my blog/Instagram or what a goal is that you have? Excited to read through those comments in the AM.
  • That day we found a marble staircase and @juliechristinephotography made a fart joke. She gets me.
  • Proud mama moment. Sophie came home from kindergarten one afternoon reciting this Remembrance Day poem over and over. It’s pretty cute! Turn your sound on and listen too 😊❤️
  • This picture makes me melt. I set the camera on self-timer and wanted to get some action shots of the three of us working on the "do try this at home" section of the @guinnessworldrecords book. When I looked back at the captures and I saw Ezras very content grin, I just couldn't even. Seriously no words. It reminded me that our kids don't care how we show up (myself pictured with a messy bun & PJs), it's the time we put in that is remembered. •

#ad Thanks to @guinnessworldrecords for encouraging us to attempt one of their 5 maker challenges and seeing how much fun the kids had blowing up balloons and learning to make balloon dogs. After a few tries I completed on in 2 minutes, might not be the fastest time in the books, but we saw some good progress from my first attempt ha! If your kids love creating, reading about all sorts of random and crazy accomplishments then head to the blog and check out what's new in the Guinness World Records 2019 edition. #GWR2019
