Matcha Affogato Recipe

Sachiko Murata |

Let's enjoy Japanese style affogato!

Affogato is an Italian dessert made with vanilla ice cream poured hot drinks or liquor on it. The most famous affogato is vanilla ice cream with espresso. 

This affogato is vanilla ice cream with strong Matcha. Matcha-lovers can imagine how nice the combination is. It’s impossible to resist. If you make this affogato with ceremonial grade Matcha and top-quality vanilla ice cream, there is nothing as indulgent as it !  




Topping berries, nuts or wafers would be a perfect treat for you. 



Matcha Affogato RECIPE


[ one serve ]

6g (2heaping tsp) of Matcha 

60ml(4tbsp) of water (70℃ /158°F) 

2 scoops vanilla ice cream

berries, nuts, wafers for topping, to taste



1 Place Matcha in a cup, pour water (70℃ /158°F), and then whisk well. Using Chasen (bamboo whisk) or milk foamer is easy to make. If you use a normal whisk, sieving Matcha will help you make without lumps.

3 Add wafers for topping of your choice.
