Ice Cream vs. Gelato

Do you know what the difference is between ice cream and gelato? Both are made from similar basic ingredients, such as mild, cream and sugar. However, gelato is typically made with more milk and contains less cream. This is what gives gelato its silky, smooth texture compared to ice cream. Gelato also tends to have a lower fat content than ice cream, which is ideal for those who want to enjoy a sugary treat without the guilt.
