The 5 Different Ice Cream Types

By | source:Here Jul 23rd, 2023

Ice cream is one of the most beloved desserts in the world. It’s also one of the most versatile, as it can be enjoyed in different ways and with a variety of ingredients. There are many types of ice cream you can enjoy, but it’s important to know what makes each type unique so that you can choose what works best for your needs. In this article we’ll explore gelato, soft serve, frozen yogurt, frozen custard and more!


Gelato is a popular Italian ice cream that is made with milk and sugar, but it has less fat than ice cream. It also contains less air than ice cream, which makes it denser. Gelato is served at a slightly warmer temperature than regular ice cream, so if you’re looking to eat something cold on a hot summer day or night then gelato might be right for you! Gelato comes in many flavors like chocolate chip cookie dough or hazelnut coffee truffle–and there are even seasonal flavors available all year long! You can find gelato at many different places including grocery stores, restaurants and even gas stations sometimes (if they have an ice cream machine).

Soft serve

Soft serve is a frozen dessert that is served at a temperature that is lower than hard ice cream. It’s typically made from milk, cream and other ingredients. Soft serve can be scooped out of an ice cream machine or served from an automatic soft serve dispenser (also known as a frozen yogurt machine). Soft serve cones are usually made with inverted cones; the bottom part of the cone acts as its own cup for holding any extra toppings you might want on top of your treat. If you’re going to eat soft serve by itself without any extras, then use one of these!

Frozen Yogurt

Frozen yogurt is a low-fat frozen dessert that contains less sugar than ice cream. It’s made with a higher ratio of milk to cream, which gives it its distinctive texture–finer and smoother than regular ice cream. The main difference between frozen yogurt and regular yogurt is that the latter contains live cultures, while the former does not. The taste of frozen yogurt varies depending on whether it has been sweetened or unsweetened; however, most people think of it as being tart rather than sweet because it doesn’t contain as much added sugar as other types of desserts do (e.g., gelato). It can also be flavored with fruit or chocolate syrup for added flavor variety!

Frozen Custard

Frozen custard is the most similar to ice cream, but with a few key differences. It’s made with egg yolks, more cream and milk than ice cream, and it has more fat content. This makes frozen custard richer than regular ice creams–it can have up to twice as much fat. Like all other types of frozen desserts (except sorbet), frozen custard is made with a custard base rather than just pureed fruit or flavorings added after churning like in soft serve machines at your local Dairy Queen.

Ice Cream

Ice cream is a delicious treat that can be enjoyed by everyone. It’s the perfect dessert to end your meal and it also makes for a good snack when you’re trying to watch what you eat. If you’re looking for something sweet and creamy, ice cream is an excellent choice!
