Recipe by:

This recipe is a playful take on the affogato – a traditional Italian, coffee-based ice cream dessert. This rendition incorporates matcha powder into the espresso mixture and to create a flavorful glaze for the cornflakes for an added crunch. Made with real dairy, just without the lactose, it’s the perfect creamy treat.

Matchagato parfait with saltine cracker
Matcha Glazed Cornflakes:

3 tablespoons LACTAID® Reduced Fat 2% Milk (more, if needed)

1 tablespoon matcha powder

½ cup cornflake cereal

1¼ cup powdered sugar


1½ cup <a href="/products/lactaid-vanilla-ice-cream">LACTAID® Vanilla Ice Cream</a>

1/8 cup <a href="/products/lactaid-milk/lactaid-reduced-fat-2-milk">LACTAID® Reduced Fat 2% Milk</a>

¼ tablespoon instant espresso coffee

¼ cup boiling water

¼ cup chocolate dirt

1 graham cracker

1 teaspoon matcha powder

  1. For the matcha glaze, in a small saucepan over low heat, mix 1¼ cup of powdered sugar, 1 tablespoon matcha powder and 3 tablespoons of LACTAID® Reduced Fat 2% Milk. Slowly whisk until dissolved. Set aside to cool.
  2. For the matchagato, bring ¼ cup of water to a boil.
  3. Pour the boiling water into a cup filled with ¼ tablespoon of instant coffee. Stir until dissolved and set aside.
  4. Pour 1/8 cup of LACTAID® Reduced Fat 2% Milk (or more, according to taste) into the espresso. Set aside.
  5. Place the ¼ cup of chocolate dirt on the bottom of a glass bowl.
  6. Scoop 1½ cup of LACTAID® Vanilla Ice Cream into the glass bowl.
  7. Place one graham cracker into the side of the ice cream.
  8. Pour espresso directly into the bowl and over the ice cream scoop.
  9. Take 2 tablespoons of your cooled matcha glaze and drizzle it across the scoop of ice cream in a zigzag motion.
  10. In a separate bowl, pour ½ cup of cornflake cereal and slowly pour the remaining matcha glaze over the cornflakes. Mix until well-coated. Be careful not to over glaze, which causes the cornflakes to become soft and lose their crunch. Top the ice cream with the matcha cornflakes.
  11. Using a sifter, take 1 teaspoon of matcha powder and dust over the bowl to serve.
