Saigon Cinnamon Affogato (and I found a hazelnut latte ice cream!)
This post is sponsored by H-E-B (aka my fav grocery store).
Come visit me! I have a freezer filled to the brim with ice cream pints!
And not just any ice cream pints(!!!), but super fun flavored ice cream pints.
Umm…do you see the two flavors on the top of this stack???? They are my ice cream plans for summer. I don’t think I need any other flavors. I mean, hazelnut latte? It’s like they consulted me when coming up with this new line of unique H-E-B Central Market ice cream flavors.
I wasn’t consulted, but I think they can like see inside my brain because hazelnut latte is such a brilliant ice cream idea.
What to do when you have 8 pints of ice cream in your fridge? You make an affogato, of course.
I think affogato is the ultimate latte. I’ve never ordered an affogato off a menu before. I’ll have to start looking for it more and get one when I get the chance.
But if I don’t find one on a menu in the near future, I’ll be just fine thanks to the nice little stockpile of ice cream pints in my fridge and my french press.
My favorite flavors of ice cream to use in the affogato were the hazelnut latte (coffee on coffee) and the saigon cinnamon. Creamy, cold cinnamon + hot coffee. YES.
And my imagination says an affogato would also be good with the Buttermilk Caramel and/or the Dark Chocolate Ganache.
Ohh. And if you are local (i.e. in/near Houston), H-E-B is hosting an event where you’ll get to meet the ice cream chef, try the new ice cream flavors and head home with a swag bag of goodies. Details for how to enter will be on my instagram/facebook/twitter today. Or you can just check out the hashtag, “#primopicks.”
