Move over Tuesday Tidbits, we’ve got some gelato in the house. Well, technically, half of the sample I was sent has already been devoured, but that’s beyond the point. I had to sample all of the flavors before I could write an honest review post anyway.
You all know ice cream is my weakness, right? This kale, kombucha, and chia seed-loving girl can admittingly polish off a pint of Ben & Jerry’s with ease. I don’t only crave creamy, cold ice cream in the hot summer months either; hello holiday Peppermint Bark!
The folks at Forte Gelato caught word of my obsession with creamy frozen desserts (and my knack for nutrition); they offered to send me a taste of their high-protein, low-fat gelato — say whhaaat!?
As I said above, I’ve nearly plowed through half of the dozen samples sent to me last Wednesday… do the math ;)
I found in coincidental that their four flavors are my favorite flavors: espresso, chocolate, ginger, and vanilla. I am a simple girl when it comes to my gelato/ice cream. I swear they made this product just for me.
I was definitely interested in the stellar nutritional profile — 15 grams of protein in 4 ounces is rather impressive! And while I was a tad apprehensive that the agave would add an obnoxious amount of sweetness, it surprisingly doesn’t do so. I guess this has to do with the simple, not-too-sweet flavor choices like espresso and ginger.
While nutrition stats have their importance, I was most curious in the ingredient lists. That is where I always look first when scoping out a new product.
“Quality ingredients like rBST-free skim milk and cream, rBST-free milk proteins, organic agave nectar and cage-free egg yolks make each perfectly portioned treat as wholesome as it is decadent.” (source)
My square Italian gelato spoons give Forte Gelato a
stamp lick of approval.
