Nothing quite like that sweet and refreshing taste of ice cream. Gelato, Italian-style ice cream, is equally as tasty but also smooth and silky. The two types of ice cream are similar but, of course, have some marked differences.
Gelato tends to be softer with a more intense flavor. There are several reasons for this, related to the process of making it and how it is stored. However, the process of making it is very similar to how ice cream is made though the ingredients are a bit different.
Let's look at these differences and also what is the best ice cream machine for making your own gelato or ice cream for you and your whole family.
