After Dinner Affogato


What to have after dinner? A coffee? Or dessert? Why not both, with a perfect mix of smooth and creamy vanilla ice cream nestled under a generous splash of rich espresso and caramel drizzle. We love the idea of adding some extra texture with some crushed biscotti. Simple. Effective. Delicious.

  • 2 Shots of L’OR Ristretto Espresso
  • ½ Cup Coarsely Crushed Biscotti
  • 2 Scoops Vanilla Ice Cream
  • Caramel
  1. In a dessert glass, layer ¼ cup of crushed biscotti and 2 scoops of vanilla ice cream.
  2. Pour 2 espresso shots into the glass.
  3. Drizzle caramel over the ice cream and garnish with more crushed biscotti.

Brilliant Beetroot Latte

Bear with us with this one. You might not think that beetroot and lattes go together, but they really do! Especially when made with Tea and the Gang’s speciality latte powder, available from Fox Trading. This drink can be enjoyed hot or cold, and its incredible pink hue is sure to grab some attention. If you want fun, bold, social media perfect beverages, then you can’t go wrong with Tea and the Gang.

  2. If needed, sweeten with a squeeze of honey, agave/maple syrup (or equivalent sweetener)
  3. Add a splash of boiling hot water and whisk, or stir until the powder is fully dissolved.
  4. Top up with steamed, or cold milk of your choice.
  5. For cold brews just add some ice.

The Ultimate Mocha

Indulging in mocha coffee is like embracing the best of both worlds – a delightful caffeine kick from expertly brewed aromatic coffee harmoniously united with the velvety richness of hot or cold chocolate. This exquisite beverage remains a perennial favorite, perfectly suited for sipping whether the weather calls for warmth or refreshment. Enjoy it in the comforting embrace of a steaming mug or the cool companionship of an iced glass. Don’t forget the toppings!
