Gelato v Ice Cream

“Gelato” in Italian literally means “Frozen”, however its most commonly known as the Italian word for Ice Cream. Though Gelato is pretty similar to traditional Ice Cream, there are a few important differences.

Gelato is made predominantly from whole milk, whereas Ice Cream is mostly cream-based. This means Gelato contains much less fat and butterfat than Ice Cream. Gelato is also churned rather than whipped, this production process means Gelato contains a lot less air and is therefore much more dense than Ice Cream. This concentrates the flavour and makes Gelato much more delicious!.
