Giada De Laurentiis' Dairy-Free Iced Coffee Starts With A Chocolate Shot
If a shaken espresso and an espresso martini had a baby, it might look like the shakerato, a shaken Italian coffee that chef Giada de Laurentiis has her own recipe for.
As seen on YouTube, de Laurentiis' take on the drink includes both regular coffee and espresso, ice, and a shot of chocolate syrup instead of the more typical simple syrup.
The ingredients are shaken together in a cocktail shaker to create a sweet, foamy drink that’s already so satisfying that it doesn’t need any dairy additions.
To make a shakerato, you’ll need espresso or strong French press coffee that is then shaken with the other ingredients for at least 15 seconds to create a thick foam.
You can try de Laurentiis’ take on the drink or opt for simple syrup or even condensed milk instead of chocolate, then serve in a martini glass and top with coffee beans.
