WTH, Italian Whaaat? Is it like snow cones or shaved ice?
Fuhgettaboutit…Not Even Close! Unlike snow cones & shaved ice (which is literally just a pile of shaved/crunchy ice with syrups poured over the top), our Italian Ice Cream is made with the same blending consistency process as ‘traditional’ ice cream where all of the flavors & ingredients are mixed together prior to being frozen.
So instead of chewing on crunchy chunks of ice, Italian Ice Cream has more of a consistent texture & flavoring with each bite that just melts in your mouth! It delivers a unique silky, smooth textured, creamy and delicious refreshing frozen dessert in a natural water base consistency made with fruit puree.
Italian Ice may also be referred to as “Water / Fruit Ice” or Granita in Italian. The closest description we can give it is being a hand-scooped smoothie or that it’s most similar to a sorbet. It’s also a healthier alternative to traditional ice cream (which is dairy based) so it’s an ideal ice cream alternative for those who are lactose intolerant or for those that are health conscious. Now you can have that ‘guilty pleasure’ without all of the guilt! Have our delicious Italian Ice Cream Catering Bay Area Desserts service your next special event!
