4. Vegan Blueberry Lavender Lemon Gelato
Alright guys, I did it… a couple weeks ago I officially busted out my ice cream maker to kick off the warm weather. I couldn’t wait any longer to dive right into making this idea I had for homemade gelato. I’ve been a long time fan of lavender essential oil, but I’ve never used it in my food before, so I was super curious how it would turn out. I am excited to report that it’s delicious and y’all seemed so into it on my Instagram I thought I would post the recipe!
5. The Best Low-Carb Mint Chocolate Gelato
This gelato recipe is at the top of my favorite Keto approved desserts. When you compare gelato vs ice cream you’ll see that gelato is a little more creamy and has a softer consistency than ice cream recipes.

7. Dark Chocolate Gelato
Dark yet surprisingly light, this fantastic chocolate gelato from Alice Medrich’s latest book, Flavor Flours, uses superfine white rice flour, a favorite of pastry chefs for thickening
8. Italian Pistachio Gelato
When in Italy, I also learned that one of the main differences in gelato is in the preparation. Gelato is made in a custard form first, heating it up, and then allowing it to cool down so that the milk proteins bind. This produces the smaller ice crystals and delicate flavor that differentiates it from ice cream. Gelato is definitely one of Italy’s great culinary creations!
9. Basil Gelato
Vividly green and intensely flavored, this smooth basil gelato is a perfectly unexpected dessert.
10. Creamy, Homemade Strawberry Chocolate Chip Gelato
My favorite dessert, hands down, is chocolate covered strawberries. Really anything covered in chocolate is pretty divine, but the strawberries give the illusion that you’re eating something somewhat healthy.

21. Homemade Chocolate Gelato
When I went to Italy in my 20’s (it’s sad that I can say that!) one of my favorite things on a warm afternoon was chocolate gelato. Oh my, what a treat. We recently got an ice cream maker and the very first recipe I wanted to try was a homemade chocolate gelato recipe. I begged Lacy (who is the real cook in our house) to make it. To my surprise, I met with little resistance!
22. Italian Gelato Di Crema
A proper Italian gelato di crema is sort of like vanilla ice cream, only in place of vanilla, you infuse the milk with a modest grating or shaving of lemon zest. This doesn’t turn it into lemon ice cream, itself a cool dollop of heaven. What happens, rather, is that the small-volume scent of lemon makes the eggs eggier and the custard creamier. In short, we’re talking platonic ideal of ice cream.
23. Vanilla Caramel Gelato
Creamy, cold, sweet and delicious, this Gelato is the perfect Summer treat! This Vanilla Caramel Gelato is a wonderful classic with fresh caramel sauce swirled in. Decadent, yet light, this will have you coming back for more and more!
