A hot frosty affogato is perfect for the best trend – dessert for breakfast! It is a frosty dessert with a hot pour, and it originated in Italy, of course the authentic version is made with vanilla ice cream. Spicy cashew cream instead of vanilla ice cream is way more interesting! It is an unbelievable experience: the taste of melting frosty sweet cashew cream melting under the hot rich mocha. Yes.
