Sometimes it’s hard to find that perfect treat. Especially for special occasions and for the holidays.
That’s why Gelato can be such a great treat.
We’re not talking about any old Gelato, we’re talking about Gelato that is homemade.
Why does homemade gelato taste better? Because it’s homemade that’s why!
Gelato is a…ahem…healthier alternative to ice cream.
It’s not made from cream like ice cream is (so it’s lower in fat).
Believe it or not, but Gelato often has less sugar than ice cream.
When you make your own Gelato, you get to choose the ingredients for the perfect mix.
Gelato also packs a more flavorful punch in every bite because unlike ice-cream, it’s not puffed up with a lot of air whipped into it.
Making Gelato at home
The great thing about making this tasty treat at home is that it’s easy to do, and it will impress your guests.
Gelato is a tasty treat that is unique, it gives your guests something to talk about and enjoy.
No more pulling out the tub of ice cream–no, no.
A few scoops (or more) of Gelato can have you appreciating some of the finer desserts in life, and since you can make it from your own home, it doesn’t break the bank every time you want one.
We fell in love with Gelato after the first few scoops.
If you want to make it from home, check out our review of the DeLonghi GM6000 Gelato maker.
It’s self-refrigerating so you don’t have to make it, then freeze it like you do with an ice cream maker.
All it takes is 30 minutes!
Another popular Gelato Maker is the Breville Smart Scoop. It has a slightly larger bowl capacity than the DeLonghi, and an incredible design.
The king of the gelato makers though is the Lello Musso. It’s pricy, but it’s Italian and made to produce that absolute best gelato.
If you’re looking for a little more versatility and capacity, the classy Whynter Machine makes ice cream, sorbets, and gelato and has almost twice the bowl capacity at 2.1 quarts.
So for the holidays (or any special occasion) enjoy the treat that will impress your guests and be delicious to savor.
