Gelato – Italian Ice Cream

Italian Ice cream (Gelato) isn’t just a fancy name for ice cream, it is a different product.

Ice Cream
An Ice cream is characterized by a light and fluffy aspect and is full of fat. Ice cream is made of milk, cream, sugar, and egg yolks.
The ingredients in ice cream are first cooked together into a rich custard. After the custard base is cooled, it’s churned at a fairly high speed to incorporate air and increase its volume.
Ice cream is served at a fairly cold temperature that makes scoops hold together.
On the contrary, Gelato (Italian word for ice cream) is a dense and intense frozen dessert. The making process starts out with a base with a much higher proportion of milk and less cream and no eggs at all. It is churned at a much slower rate, incorporating less air and leaving the gelato denser than ice cream.
Gelato is served at a slightly warmer temperature than ice cream, so its texture stays silkier and softer. Because it has a lower percentage of fat than ice cream, it has an intense flavor. The actual ingredients really shine through.
To conclude, Italian Ice Cream (Gelato) is more tasty, intense and healthier than normal Ice Cream! Fior Di Latte Gelato has been serving the best Italian Ice Cream in Nairobi for over 10 years. Find them at Lavington Mall. You can also order online for delivery on
