What's Affogato? Also known as "affogato al caffe", it's one of the easiest desserts prepped in less than five minutes. Imagine the creamiest, silkiest vanilla keto ice cream served with strong Italian coffee. That's what this low-carb dessert is all about.

This sugar-free Affogato is a great way to serve at any dinner party. The kids can have a scoop of ice cream while the grown ups enjoy both ice cream and a cup of coffee in one delicious keto dessert. If you'r planning to serve this after dinner, you can use decaf coffee.

Ingredients (makes 1 serving)

Creamy vanilla ice cream:
  • 2 to 3 small scoops of Creamy Vanilla Ice Cream
  • single or double espresso


  1. If you don't have any keto ice cream in the freezer, prepare the vanilla ice cream. Separate the egg yolks from the egg whites. Reserve the egg whites for another recipe — you will only need the yolks. Low-Carb Affogato
  2. Whisk it all, then gently heat up over a medium heat to cook the egg yolks. Do not boil, just enough to cook enough until the mixture starts thickening (this will take 5-10 minutes). Mix at all times to prevent the custard from sticking to the bottom. Low-Carb Affogato
  3. Pour into the container of your ice cream maker and let it cool down to room temperature. You can place the container in a bowl filled with ice water to cool it down quickly, in just 5-10 minutes.
  4. Add to ice cream maker and churn until soft-serve consistency (this will take 45-60 minutes). Low-Carb Affogato
  5. Spoon into a freezer-safe container and freeze for at least 30 minutes before serving or until ready to eat.
  6. Soften out of the freezer for a few minutes before scooping. Store, covered, in the freezer for up to two months. Low-Carb Affogato
  7. When ready to make the Affogato, prepare coffee to your liking (single or double espresso, regular or decaf). Add scoops of vanilla ice cream (2 to 3 small scoops per serving). Enjoy! Low-Carb Affogato

I changed the way I ate in 2011, when I was diagnosed with Hashimoto’s, an autoimmune disease that affects the thyroid. I had no energy, and I found it more and more difficult to maintain a healthy weight.

That’s when I decided to quit sugar, grains, and processed foods, and to start following a whole-foods-based ketogenic approach to food.
