A little about Gelato & Sorbetto…

Italy’s version of ice cream, Gelato has been a decadent frozen treat for centuries!  It has significantly less butterfat than regular ice cream, however, less fat does not mean less taste.  Gelato is served about 10 to 15 degrees warmer than ice cream, and because it is less solidly frozen, Gelato’s taste is further enhanced as it melts in the mouth.  Amazing flavor at half the calories and 1/5 the fat of regular ice cream!

Gelato has a much higher density than ice cream, which is produced by mixing cream, milk and sugar, then adding air. Manufacturers add air to ice cream because it nearly doubles the quantity of their product. But, it cuts their quality in half. No air is added to Gelato. The result is a higher quality dessert with a richer, creamier taste.

Sorbetto, or Sorbet, is a frozen dessert made from sweetened water flavored with fruit, wine, beer or liqueurs.  Most are made without milk or butterfat, making it fat free, lactose free and guilt free!
