This is a Japanese twist to a classic Italian Affogato, which is a scoop of ice cream with a shot of espresso. I thought to myself, what would happen if I substituted it with matcha instead of espresso? I got a delivery of Material Matcha Uji MU02, which is high quality smooth blend of Samidori and Okumidori matcha. To get your own, you can use promo code “DIANAFOODMMU10” for 10% off their site. It’s always handy to have some matcha around for making desserts, or making drinks. You’ll know it’s high quality matcha when it’s nice green and vibrant.
With the combination of the matcha and ice cream, it really make it taste like an ice matcha latte or matcha ice cream.
