Frozen Desserts 101

Ice Cream Iced or frozen cream, or a combination of milk and cream, sweetened with sugar. Philadelphia-Style Ice Cream Quick and easy ice cream made from an uncooked base that doesn't include eggs. French-Style Ice Cream Ice cream made from a cooked egg custard that is chilled before churning. Sorbet Smooth, light dessert with no eggs or dairy, made by churning and freezing a sweet puree usually containing fruit.

Gelato Silky Italian frozen treat made with an egg-rich custard and less cream than ice cream. Less air is incorporated during churning, resulting in a denser consistency. Sherbet A cross between ice cream and sorbet, usually made with a fruit puree and sugar, and often containing dairy. Granita Dessert made by freezing a puree or liquid in a pan and stirring or scraping by hand to create an icy consistency.
