An Australian gelato franchise called 'Gelatissimo' recently produced a donut filled with a scoop of gelato. In recent years, many chefs and restaurateurs have attempted to elevate the humble donut by combining it with everything from snack cakes to savory sausages. This latest creation puts a chilly twist on the warm breakfast treat.
The dish consists of a traditional donut filled with a generous scoop of gelato. Unlike ice cream, gelato is made from whole milk instead of cream. The use of milk not only means that the gelato is lower in fat but it also has a smoother texture that perfectly complements the heavy pastry. The dish is served warm, putting an unexpected twist on the traditional ice cream sandwich.
For those who want to get their hands on one of these tasty treats, Gelatissimo will begin serving the gelato donuts at all of its Australia locations on September 9th.
