Amorino Gelato al Naturale

January 25, 2018

If you don’t already consider yourself a gelato believer, it’s time to rethink your priorities in life. Amorino Gelato Al Naturale has opened its doors as one of the sweetest new additions to the Clear Fork development (see what we did there?). Why Gelato? Co-owner German, who lived in Italy for close to a decade, passionately explained it to us this way: ice cream to gelato is like comparing junk food to a fresher, healthier alternative.

At roughly 1/3 the amount of sugar in ice cream, (and calories for that matter,) gelato is an excellent choice for the health conscious to enjoy a treat that’s every bit as celebratory, luxurious, and delicious. Lower fat content and a higher serving temperature also contribute to your mouth’s heightened ability to taste and fully savor the array of flavors available.

But as a premier gelato shop, Amorino takes things quite a few steps past the ordinary, boasting 100% natural, organic ingredients, zero artificial food coloring, and plenty of gluten-free and vegan-friendly options. Partnered with its pursuit of excellence in quality is a desire to eschew the sterile, almost hospital-esque atmosphere of the typical gelato shop. You’re immediately greeted upon walking in and find yourself in a warm, welcoming, and cozy environment, clearly inviting you to relax and stay a while.

Then there’s the presentation. Amorino is probably best known for pioneering a technique to create the gelato flower: an instantly eye-catching (and oh-so-Instagram-worthy) feat that truly elevates your enjoyment. Other specialties include gelato macarons that will change your life, gelato-topped crepes & waffles, (a delightful marriage of hot and cold), assorted pastries, and the perfect accompaniment of espresso beverages and other hot drinks, including European style hot chocolate: a must-try.

So what more are you waiting for? Round up some friends and come get a little taste of Italy this weekend.
