Make your own Italian-inspired gelato this summer or all year around! This recipe is SO delicious and creamy, bringing you back to any travels you have had to Italy. To make this gelato, it does require an ice cream machine. Some ice cream machines are quite affordable; however, be sure that when you run it you do not burn out the motor by letting it churn until creamy but not stiff. Follow instructions from manufacturer for best results. Enjoy this wonderful recipe, and we appreciate Laura Vitale for providing extra tips on how to make perfect gelato!
