We just had another winter treat at Gelatissimo Gouger Street, Adelaide City over the weekend! Why not? There are four (4) reasons to love this place and their products.
First off, the unique Gelatissimo flavours of gelato are just so good that it makes you wanna indulge guilt-free.
Yes, guilt-free especially for health-conscious people and those with special dietary requirements. Rightly, it is because Gelatissimo menu has low-in-sugar and fat-free options, as well as gluten-free or dairy-free flavours available. Furthermore, Gelatissimo makes fresh artisan gelato on site with the finest ingredients daily. Isn’t that amazing?
Gelatos are a Healthy Option
By the way, what is a Gelato? Sounds Italian right? Okay, you’re right. Most people will answer that a Gelato is an Italian word for ice cream, but less of us know that there is a difference between the two.
According to Sweets.SeriousEats.com:
“Gelato has less fat in the base and less air churned into it during the freezing process. Ice creams are heavy on the cream and have a fat content (considerably higher in most homemade and many premium versions). Gelato, by comparison, uses more milk than cream, so it doesn’t have nearly as much fat. Additionally, it usually—but not always—uses fewer (to the point of none) egg yolks, another source of fat in custard-based ice creams.”
Furthermore, from Gelatissimo’s infographic, the difference between an ice cream and gelato is clearly illustrated below:
Now that you know the above information, maybe you will rethink choosing an ice cream over a gelato, given the choice, next time.
Gelatissimo menu is available at this link. Among great flavours, our choices this time are the classics! We had Mango Mania and Biscottino or cookies and cream Italian style.
The Biscottino gelato is rich, creamy and truly delectable! It went well with the zest of the Mango gelato that is made sugar free, yet deliciously sweet. The fusion of acidity and creaminess of the two flavours just perfectly blends well in my tongue. Gelato’s flavours come through direct, hard, and fast, then melt away clean.
Nonetheless, for next time, I will try their coffee, ice cream cakes, doughnuts and sandwiches. I will also look out for the following flavours of gelato to try: Banoffee (banana and toffee gelato with swirls of toffee sauce), Belgian Chocolate (authentically rich chocolate gelato), Choc Honeycomb (honeycomb gelato with choc-coated honeycomb pieces), Hugh Chocman (delicious chocolatey gelato with a salty caramel swirl), and Forest Berries (the perfect sorbet mix of raspberries, blueberries and strawberries).
