Coffee, peanut and banana ice cream float


This fun take on an ice cream float combines peanut butter with sweet banana and a creamy Tassimo Costa Latte to make a drink that works as well as a dessert as it does a midmorning treat. Decorating the glass with melted chocolate and hazelnuts looks impressive but it’s actually incredibly simple!

Place two glasses or serving bowls into the freezer


Prepare two lattes and allow to cool


Gently melt the chocolate for the glasses in a bain marie, and scatter the hazelnuts across a plate in an even layer


Remove a glass from the freezer and use a spoon to swirl the chocolate around the inside of the glass to make a pattern. Dip the rim into the melted chocolate then into the nuts. Transfer to the freezer and repeat with the second glass


Add the frozen bananas to the blender with the ice cubes, peanut butter and coffee and blend until smooth


Scoop the ice cream into glasses, then pour the coffee mixture over the top. Garnish with grated chocolate to serve
