2 tablespoons milk
2 tablespoons hot fudge ice cream topping, at room temperature (see recipe)*
1 cup diced banana
3/4 cup Häagen-Dazs Cappuccino Gelato or favorite coffee ice cream
2 tablespoons toasted hazelnuts, chopped **


Place the milk, hot fudge sauce, banana, gelato, and hazelnuts in a blender and mix on low speed until the mixture is blended. Continue mixing, gradually increasing the speed, until the mixture is smooth. Pour the smoothie into a wine goblet or glass and garnish with a Walnut Meringue Shard (see Glorious Garnish), if desired.

* Commercially made hot fudge sauce can be substituted for the home-made hot fudge sauce.

** To toast the hazelnuts: Place them in a shallow pan and bake at 350°F (in a preheated oven) for 10 to 15 minutes or until fragrant.
