Somebody ordered an espresso float with ice cream when I was standing in line in a cute local coffee store. I copied his order. And guess what? I was hooked immediately! How come I never thought about pairing ice cream with espresso together?
It is really easy and simple to DIY it at home too.
2 shots of espresso
1 to 2 scoops of chocolate ice cream
caramel sauce (optional)
Make double shots espresso with espresso machine.
If you find double shots are too strong, switch to single shot.
Add a big scoop of chocolate ice cream. You can use any other flavor ice cream too. I think chocolate ice cream is a better choice to go with espresso than other ice creams.
There is no way I am going to stop at 1 scoop. I must have 2 scoops of chocolate ice cream！O(∩_∩)O~
I made my own chocolate ice cream too so that I can make sure I get real dark and intense chocolate flavor in the ice cream. Top it with homemade caramel sauce. It goes so well with freshly pumped espresso coffee.
