Gelato vs. Ice Cream: What's the Difference?

Gelato differs from ice cream in three ways and these small differences make it that much better.

  1. It is served at a warmer temperature than ice cream which makes it ideal for consuming. Ice cream is served colder which means you have to wait a little bit for it to melt in your mouth for it to be just the right temperature. Gelato, however, is ready to enjoy right away.
  2. Gelato is a denser frozen dessert which means it contains less air than ice cream. This makes it much smoother and higher quality so you can feel like Italian royalty during consumption.
  3. Finally, it has less butter fat. This helps you perceive and taste the flavor better. It also means gelato is healthier than ice cream which is completely justifies eating it every day…or every meal
