I got asked recently to recreate a gelato/sorbet through one of my clients who had recently visited Italy. I came up with this recipe and I actually love it! It’s almost chai like, the warming spice fits perfectly with the season and colder weather. The spices gives a depth of flavour and the almond milk a richness which I like, a richness that doesn’t come from eggs yolks and double cream :)
I’d definitely recommend making this one, especially if you’re looking for a dairy free ice cream. Although it’s cold, the flavours are warming. I guess you could even have it as a chai smoothie, why not?!
I used coconut blossom nectar which has a lovely depth of flavour and is a healthier alternative to processed sugars. Maple syrup would also taste great. You can buy unsweetened natural almond milk, or make your own.
