Chocolate Gelato Recipe
What is Gelato? Some people think it is ice cream. However, this is not the case. There is a vast difference between Gelato and Ice Cream. To put the difference simple, gelato is much more creamier and lighter than ice cream. Because it is made from whole milk instead of heavy cream, it contains less fat. But, in some rare cases, the combination of both milk and cream is used for gelato. To put it simply, Gelato is better than ice cream.
This homemade chocolate gelato recipe is for Sicilian chocolate gelato, which is even further from American ice cream than the gelato served in northern Italy. Sicilian gelato does not contain cream or eggs; it uses as a base what is called crema rinforzata, made from milk, sugar, and cornstarch. The result is a gelato that is both lighter and more intensely flavored than American ice cream or Northern Italian gelato (which is usually made with an egg-based custard).
This Gelato is different from American ice creams. This is in two ways. First, this gelato contains less fats than ice cream. Second, it is churned slower which pumps less air in it than ice cream. This makes it much creamier and softened. So, gelato is much more healthier. You should try this at home.
