the differences between a GELATO, a SORBET and an ICE CREAM.
Gelato is made from a custard base, like ice cream, but is churned slower, giving it a denser texture. Frozen at a warmer temperature, gelato is silkier and softer than conventional ice cream.
Sorbet is made from a fruit juice base with a sugar syrup, without any dairy at all. It’s churned just like ice cream, which helps to create the smooth texture.
Ice cream is typically made with a custard base – milk, cream, sugar, and most often, egg yolks. Churning breaks up ice crystals as they form, forcing them to be smaller, while the speed whips air into the frozen base, leaving a creamy, light-textured, smooth result.
IS SORBET AND SHERBET TWINS or just PLAIN OLE’ RELATIVES?
Sorbet is a fruit based frozen dessert with a little or no milk at all. And on the other hand, sherbet or sherbert is a fruit based dairy frozen dessert made with milk or cream. They’re more like relatives on the frozen side.

MILK. Milk is the most important ingredient of a shake. You can’t shake a shake without a milk.
