Leave it to author Nik Sharma to create an affogato recipe that infuses ground turmeric and fresh ginger. The flavors are unlike any other you've sipped.




  • In a Dutch oven or large saucepan combine milk, half-and-half, sugar, honey, turmeric, and salt. Cook and stir constantly over medium-high until milk starts to boil vigorously. In a small bowl whisk together cornstarch and 2 Tbsp. water. Whisk into milk mixture. (Reduce heat to medium if milk bubbles up too fast). Let boil 4 minutes, stirring constantly, or until mixture resembles custard and coats the back of a spoon.

  • Strain hot mixture through a sieve if necessary. In a large bowl whisk hot mixture into cream cheese; chill.

  • Using a garlic press or a piece of cheesecloth, squeeze and collect juice from grated ginger. Stir juice into ice cream base. Pour mixture into ice cream maker. Churn according to manufacturer's instructions. Transfer to a container. Freeze at least 4 hours.

  • To serve, scoop ice cream into dishes or mugs. Top with hot coffee. Serves 8.
