Apricot Amaretto Affogato

Recipe by: ROXY NABA

  • Prep time:60 minutes
  • Cook time:12 minutes


  • 2 1/2 cups water
  • half a canister of Tea Forté Apricot Amaretto Loose Tea Leaves (1.4 oz)
  • 1/4 cup sugar
  • 3 fresh apricots
  • half a vanilla bean, cut lengthwise and seeded
  • vanilla ice cream or gelato


  1. In a small saucepan over high heat, bring the water to a boil.
  2. Remove from the heat and add the tea leaves. Cover and let steep until the tea is strong and dark but not bitter, 3 to 5 minutes.
  3. Strain the tea, discarding the leaves, and add the sugar, stirring until dissolved.
  4. In the same saucepan, poach the apricots, tea syrup you just made, and vanilla bean over medium heat until the apricots are soft but still firm (about 7 min).
  5. Strain the apricots from the syrup and reserve in separate bowls. Chill both the apricots and syrup in the refrigerator for 1 hour or until cold.
  6. When ready to serve, spoon the chilled apricots over scoops of vanilla ice cream. Pour some of the chilled syrup on top and enjoy!

Yields: 6 servings
