Gelato is a dense, creamy Italian frozen dessert, similar to ice cream. Ingredients include milk, cream, honey and sugar, often combined with flavorings and fruit, chocolate, liquor, spices or nuts. Compared to traditional ice cream, gelato has a lower fat and air content, producing a richer, softer “mouth feel.” Its warmer serving temperature means that gelato melts faster than ice cream. A form made with water and no milk or soy milk is called sorbetto. Gelato is best served fresh.

Northern Italy is famous for the dairy form of gelato, and Southern Italy and Sicily take credit for the sorbetto version. Popular flavors include chocolate, vanilla, peanut butter, hazelnut, pistachio, strawberry, lemon, and combinations of vanilla, chocolate, and nuts.
