Italian Ice

Hot South Florida day got you sweating the second you leave the house? Visit us for an Italian ice! Originally known as granita in Sicily, Italian ice made its way as Italian immigrants made their way over to America in the late 1800s, early 1900s. Today, it’s still the perfect treat to cool your body temperature. We offer chocolate, mango, pina colada, coconut, lemon, cherry, watermelon, cotton candy, and strawberry flavors.


While close to ice cream, gelato is a completely different experience. Made with 70% less air than most ice creams, it has a density and flavor that distinguishes itself completely. Some of our most popular flavors include vanilla bean, belgian dark chocolate, caramel macchiato, crema siciliana, cookies & cream cheesecake, sorbet, and raspberry chocolate.

What Is The Difference Between Gelato and Ice Cream


The warm months are upon us and that means it’s high season for frozen treats! Children of all ages are looking for a cold treat to beat the heat. There are multiple choices for frozen treats and truthfully, we’ll eat most of these no matter what name they go by, but is there really a difference between ice cream and gelato? Or is gelato just a fancier name for regular ol’ ice cream?

What is Ice Cream

Ice cream is a frozen dairy dessert made of milk, cream, sugar, and (typically) egg yolks. Traditionally, French-style ice cream contained egg yolks and was richer than American-style ice cream, which didn’t initially contain eggs. However, American ice cream has now evolved to also include yolks.

The ingredients in ice cream are first slow-cooked (to prevent the eggs from scrambling) 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 (cheaper ice creams tend to have more air whipped into them).

Ice cream needs to be kept cold and is served at a fairly cold temperature that makes scoops hold together, and the finished product is smooth, light-textured, and creamy.

What is Gelato

Gelato is the Italian word for ice cream. It starts out with a similar custard base as ice cream but has a higher proportion of milk and a lower proportion of cream and eggs (or 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. Due to its lower percentage of fat, the main ingredients in gelato are allowed to shine more and give a more rich and intense flavor profile than ice cream.
