Gelato is an Italian variation of ice cream that is dense, creamy and delicious. Although it is made of similar ingredients as regular ice cream, it has more milk, less cream, and very little to no eggs. It is believed to be a healthier option and has become quite a favourite of many. Various ice cream parlours have also started keeping a selection of gelato flavours due to its increasing popularity.
If you are craving something sweet and cold, but do not wish to have just a few scoops from ice cream shops nearby, we are here to help you out.
