I have eaten a lot of frozen treats in my time, and quite a few of them vegan. I was surprised and excited when I found JezRipe Gelato on a recent trip to Malaysia. It is made locally in Malaysia from fresh fruits and other ingredients sourced from Italy. It is delicious. They have many flavors including: durian, mango, strawberry, passion fruit, coconut, lychee, peach, lemon, dragon fruit, banana, orange, kiwi, pineapple, papaya, jack fruit, watermelon, chocolate, and vanilla.
I’ve tried the vanilla, lemon, coconut, and chocolate so far; all of them have been delicious. JezRipe is dense and rich. It comes in small containers with a little spoon. Perfect for the hot Malaysian afternoons. The problem is, I haven’t been able to eat just one per sitting and always end up getting a second container. JezRipe is tasty.
Gelato and ice cream aren’t actually the same there are several differences, so here are the main ones. Ice cream has a higher concentration of fat and usually more air. Since gelato has less of both it interacts with our tastebuds differently making the flavors seem more intense and the texture more creamy. In a word, tastiness.
