Nestled on the banks of the Osoyoos Lake, the Richter Pass Motor Inn promises a genuine Okanagan experience! We’re central...
Gelato is Italian-style ice cream, made from milk rather than lots of cream. At Roberto’s our gelato contains less than 6 per cent butterfat. That is over 50% less fat than premium, factory made, ice cream with 12 to 18% butterfat!
Roberto’s sorbettos (most of the fruit flavours) contain no milk products at all and are made from just real fruit, water and sugar. But don’t be fooled – they are just as smooth and creamy in texture, and it is hard to believe that they are essentially fat free! A good choice too for anyone who is lactose intolerant.
Another big difference between gelato and regular ice cream is the much lower air content, also called “overrun”. Ice cream contains as much as 50 to 60 percent air, so most of what you pay for is air! Gelato is much more dense with only 20 to 25 percent air.
Because of the lower air and fat content, as well as a slightly higher serving temperature, gelato is velvety smooth and creamy, and the flavours are generally much more intense than in regular ice cream.
During the summer months we offer around 30 different flavours. Obviously not all of the ones listed are available all of the time. Some rotate on a semi regular basis. In spring and fall we offer a more modest assortment of 12 to 16 of our most popular varieties.
Why not come in and try for yourself!
In addition to making the BEST gelato in the Okanagan Valley, we also serve great espresso, cappuccino and latte, real hot chocolate (pure Belgian chocolate and steamed milk), affogato, gelato shakes, sorbetto smoothies, and more.
