Just because it’s still winter, doesn’t mean you can’t enjoy a Caffè Shakerato con Gelato. I was inspired to make this refreshing beverage after watching Bobby and Giada in Italy on Discovery+. If you haven’t watched it yet, make yourself a Shakerato to enjoy while you start watching!
What is a Shakerato you ask? It’s an Italian-style shaken iced coffee. This beverage is perfect for a pick-me-up. It’s also great to pair with brunch or sip on for an after dinner treat! Give it a try and let me know what you think.
Recipe makes 2 servings.
• 3-4 ounces hot coffee or 2-3 shots espresso, whichever you prefer
• 3-4 ice cubes
• Whipped cream (I use the Reddi Wip coconut or almond milk one)
• Cinnamon or cacao powder
In a mason jar or cocktail shaker, combine gelato, ice, and coffee. Shake until gelato has melted. Pour into a glass, top with whipped cream, sprinkle on some cinnamon or cacao powder and enjoy!
