Latte Float

January 27, 2012

Here’s a little treat I made myself to celebrate the fact that it was mid-morning (any reason to celebrate is a good one right?).

There was a tiny bit of Ben & Jerry’s ice cream left in the carton (Dave Matthew’s Band Magic Brownies in case you’re wondering, raspberry with cream and brownies). I remembered a treat I had a few times at a Ben & Jerry’s cafe in Amsterdam and decided to recreate it. Foamy, milky coffee + ice cream = yum.

The ice cream sunk to the bottom as soon as I put it in, but you can just about see the tip of the ice-berg. If you get in there with a spoon right away, you get to enjoy a mixture of cold ice cream mixed with the hot latte! And when it’s all melted, you’re left with a creamy, flavored coffee – so good. It’s a great way to enjoy a bit of ice cream on a cold & wintry day!

This would be so good with hot chocolate too, maybe with mint chocolate chip ice cream?

Do you have any plans for the weekend? I am going to the Interior Design Show in Toronto tomorrow, I’m excited!

Hope your weekend is lovely!

    Most people think I’m a bit crazy when I try to tell them how delicious hot chocolate is with ice cream. My favourite is espresso flake. Soooo good! I’m glad to hear someone else does this too, I was beginning to think I was the only one.

    Hahaha – I literally did a whole blog post on this. So good. Also, mid-morning goodness seems like a great reason to celebrate.
