Cool Off With Gelato

Gelato is made from a custard base with a higher percent of milk and less cream than ice cream.

It does not contain egg whites and incorporates much less air than ice cream, leaving it dense, intensely flavored. It is not hard like ice cream but smooth and very shiny to look at.

Oh, and it has 1/3 less sugar than ice cream.
