Ice Cream versus Gelato

The words “ice cream” and “gelato” are often used interchangeably.  There are, however, differences between the two!

Gelato is a version of ice cream, coming directly from the Italian word for ice cream, yet it is served at a slightly warmer temperature than traditional American ice cream is. This delivers a taste sensation that is more intense. With the slightly warmer temperature, the gelato is not so ice cold that you get the “brain freeze” which so often accompanies American ice cream!  Gelato is also creamier, silkier, and smoother in texture than is ice cream. It also has less air whipped into it than ice cream, resulting in a denser, more intensely flavorsome treat.

Gelato and ice cream both contain cream, milk and sugar. Ice cream frequently includes egg yolk, while authentic gelato does not.  The ratio of milk to cream in gelato is higher than in ice cream, and gelato also contains less butterfat. This means that gelato is actually better for you and better for your waistline than traditional American ice cream!

The Gelato Cone’s gelato in McKinney is made fresh daily. We pride ourselves on using no artificial colors, flavors or sweeteners, and we use only the highest quality ingredients. These include whole milk, heavy cream, and fresh local or organic frozen fruits.
