Frati Gelato – Cremoso Gelato Delizioso Italiano

by Franklin on May 23, 2011

Gelato, ice cream’s less fatty Italian cousin, is one of my favorite desserts. It is such a perfect ending to a great meal. It’s tasty, and has a lot less fat than ice cream. One of my favorite places to get gelato is Frati Gelato in Downtown Fullerton.

Their signature flavor, Frate, is one of my favorites. It is creamy in taste (marscapone cheese). It is really good.  The Frate all by itself is good too — it has bits of pine nuts and pistachios.  I know the ingredients sound weird together, but it is really delicious. I like to mix it with a citrus like their lemon or blood orange gelato.  The creaminess and orange flavor make it taste like an orange cream or an orange bang.

Speaking of pistachios, my favorite gelato there is the pistachio.  This one is a little more expensive than the rest because they import their pistachios from Italy.  I know — legit! The taste of the pistachio gelato is amazing.  You can actually taste the quality of the ingredients and have actual pistachio pieces inside.  I sometimes don’t like gelato that is overly sweet.  This one is not overly sweet, and it has that really good pistachio flavor.  Amazing.

Freshly made on-site by master gelato maker Dr. Anthony LuPriore (not pictured above), it’s no wonder that these little cups of joy are so delicious.  The flavor is so pure and clean, it really puts regular ice cream to shame. I am happy that I found my sport for gelato.  Everyone needs their Italian ice cream fix sometimes., and I got mine.
