This coffee dessert recipe post is sponsored by Nespresso. We have teamed up to share this “How to Make an Affogato”  in just a few easy steps. All views and opinions are always my own.

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, one of the best coffee flavoured desserts.

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 one of  your new favourite coffee dessert recipes.

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 at this local coffee shop. Recently, while browsing Nespresso’s website for new recipes for coffee drinks 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!”

  • Excuse the language but...... We fucking did it!! Holy crap. 21.1 Kms you guys. We are pumped!

I had so so many thoughts and doubts going on in my head before and even during this run and I’m so glad I didn’t listen to them. This was a goal of mine (even though I should have trained more, only three 7 km runs leading up 🙊😳) that I now get to put a big check mark on. Heck yah!

James turned into some sort of wizard and passed the finish line at the 1 hour 50 minute mark and I made it over around 2 hours and 45 minutes. We did it babe!!!! #seawheeze #seawheeze2019 #halfmarathon #lululemon #vancouverisawesome

  • Happy Friday friends. Hoping you all get a chance to grab a drink and find a sweet spot to relax this weekend. I’ll be thinking of you as I complete a half marathon tomorrow 😅😅😅 As we head into the weekend I wanted to give a cheers to some ladies who inspire, encourage and motivate me in this space.

Motivated by @pyurvodkasoda (Power Your Own Unique Reality) they’ve asked who is my #PYURinspiration, so here we go. — @vancitybusinessbabes Danielle, Sydnee and Nancy are a powerhouse team who constantly are encouraging me and so many other ladies in business. I love how they have taken their passion and grown it across Canada and into the US with @businessbabesco — @ilikeherstylevancouver reaches out to me in their early days and have given me the opportunity to share a little piece of my heart continually in their issues as a contributor. Every issue I love how community focused they are, networking up a storm and creating such beautiful content for their community. — @jamprco is a local PR company that I’ve had the pleasure of working with many times and their love for local and community is empowering.

These are just a few bossbabes that inspire me with what they are doing within this local community and on Instagram. I want to challenge you to also share who inspires you, tag them (or a few people) below who are constantly inspiring and encouraging you in business and life. Let’s make some peoples days and share the ❤️❤️❤️
  • I literally LOVE every photo from this recent shoot with @juliechristinephotography so be prepared for more.⁠
⁠
Also, this photo was taken to show off the bling bling (one bling for each ring) on my finger. Both these pieces are made from Canadian diamonds and created at the Park Royal @lugarojewellers location.

I’ll share info in my stories tomorrow, let me know if you have any questions below. #ad #cwjwpartner #lugarojewellers
  • Do you ever have those moments in the midst of parenting and you stop for a second and think “this, this is a moment they are going to remember.” It’s usually in those everyday moments, ones we do over and over. The other night, while James was watering the garden and the girls were running around I had that feeling of, “this is their childhood, this is what they will remember.”
  • It’s Friday night and I’m sharing photos on my stories of how @juliechristinephotography captured my butt in these pants. Could be worse I guess 🤣🤣 PS the jeans are the curvy mom jeans from @americaneagle // @shopsevenoaks and I really do love them, except for when my butt gets hungry for them. The end.
