Though its popularity has gained amazing momentum in the past decade, some people may not know what gelato is. Many have mistaken it for mousse, pudding, a gelatin-based dessert, or a “fancy” version of premium ice cream. But none of those assumptions are correct; the accurate answer is very simple:
Gelato is the Italian version of ice cream with an artisan aesthetic.
Made with authentic ingredients, Gelato is known for its intense flavor , soft, smooth texture, and clean taste. As a matter of fact, Gelato means “frozen” in Italian.
Although that sounds super simple, there is so much more to know about Gelato including the specific ingredients used to make it, the particular ways it should be styled and served, and the host of nutritional benefits to be enthused about.
