Italian ice cream is made from milk, cream and eggs, and it is usually served with a choice of toppings, including nuts and dried fruits.
The most popular flavor is called tiramisu.
Italian ice cream contains about 80% fat, 10% protein, 2% carbohydrate and 5% sugar.
Some experts say that if you can find a good Italian ice creamer, it’s worth the extra effort to make it yourself.
“It’s a good, healthy and tasty option that should not be a luxury, but should be part of a daily routine,” said Andrea Soria, executive director of the American Association of Dairy Producers.
