Whether it’s in a cup or atop of a classic sweet cone, it’s important to know what’s in your scoop.

While both Ice Cream and Gelato are frozen desserts that contain cream, milk, and sugar, authentic Gelato has a higher proportion of milk and a lower proportion of cream and eggs (or even no eggs at all)

Ice Cream churned at a fairly high speed to incorporate air and increase its volume, giving a smooth, creamy, and lighter texture. While Gelato churned at a much slower rate, incorporating less air, making its texture denser and chewier than ice cream.
