Affogato Recipe


Caffeine bomb alert! This affogato recipe combines creamy coffee ice cream with a shot of espresso. It’s a lovely drink to have after dinner instead of dessert. Just beware, you’re getting caffeine in the coffee and the ice cream so it could keep you up for hours if you’re sensitive to caffeine.

#4 Japan (option 2)

Miso Caramel Ice Cream


There’s something about salty miso soup – I could eat it every day. Combine it into an ice cream and you’ll be more than happy. You could compare this flavour to salted caramel – both are delicious for the contrast of salty and sweet.

#6 India

Kulfi RecipeKulfi

Kulfi is a traditional dessert from the Indian sub-continent that is similar to ice cream, only denser and more icy. I didn’t think I’d enjoy this dessert as I’m not a big fan of icy desserts. I was wrong though. It’s especially nice on a really hot day.

Canadian maple bacon has so many uses in life and here’s another one. This mega dessert may seem so wrong to some and yet so right to others. It will polarise readers I’m sure. Myself, I’d like to fill a pool with this ice cream and swim in it.

Ice cream always gets me excited; but this recipe takes it to a whole new dimension. I’d sum up this Mezcal ice cream as being surprisingly tasty and a little exotic. Let’s face it, any ice cream that’s boozy is either good or great.
