So, I was recently contacted by Divino to try out their fruit gelato desserts. I had honestly never heard of them, but my local Hy-vee now carries them so I was excited to try it out.
These are so cool! They take whole, real fruits like plums, oranges, lemons, kiwi and peaches and use the middle to mix into gelato. They then fill the fruit back up with the gelato to make these unique (and super cute) desserts.
The best part for me was that they only cost me about 110-130 calories each! I know! They come in the 5 flavors listed above and they are gluten-free and some flavors are dairy free! Most Des Moines metro Hy-vee stores carry them all (but check with them for availability…the cool thing about Hy-vee is that they can order pretty much any product you want if you ask the manager even if they don’t).
Anyway, I’m pretty excited to have a low-cal, delicious snack in the freezer ready to eat. My family’s favorites were the plum, and orange. Even though it’s tough to wait, let it thaw for the 20 or minutes it tells you to before you eat it so the flavors can blend. I made the mistake of trying the lemon too soon and it was too tart because I ate the top part that was touching the rind. But, once it melted a little it was the most delicious and refreshing flavor. It was a lot like the lemon Italian Ice I remembered eating as a kid, only this one was hand crafted in Italy! Whoa…
Anyway, we want to give you a chance to try ALL 5 of these cool desserts. One box usually costs $4.99, so this is a $25 value!
