In the mood for some Italian? Gelato is the perfect sweet treat, and SheKnows has a simple recipe that’ll give it a “delizioso” boost of espresso that your friends and family will love.
gelato a boost
What you’ll need:
- 12 small glasses
- 3 cups of vanilla gelato
- 2 cups of brewed espresso
- Extra espresso beans
Step 1: Scoop the gelato
Fill one-quarter of each glass with the vanilla gelato. The best way to scoop is by scraping your spoon across the surface of the gelato, rather than digging your spoon down into it. Go ahead and be a little generous with each scoop!
Step 2: Freeze
Place the glasses in the freezer for about 30 minutes or until the gelato is nice and firm. The firmer, the better for when you add the freshly brewed espresso.
Step 3: Give it a boost
Pour three tablespoons of espresso into each glass. Make sure it isn’t piping hot or the gelato will melt rapidly.
Step 4: Garnish and serve
Sprinkle some espresso beans on top and serve right away. Everyone will be shouting “Mama mia!’ once they get a taste.
