Types of Gelato

There are many different types of gelato. There is the traditional light and fluffy Italian-style ice cream. It’s made with milk, sugar, and eggs. This style of gelato is much lighter than American-style ice cream and has a lower fat content. There is also a soft-serve variety. Soft-serve gelato tends to be more dense and creamy than American-style ice cream. It’s made primarily with milk that is heated and mixed with sugar, eggs, and occasionally flavoring agents like chocolate or vanilla. The final type of gelato is Sicilian ices, which consist of water that has been flavored with fruits or herbs and frozen in some kind of container.


Differences Between Gelato and Ice Cream

Gelato is a more dense, sugar-based ice cream that originated in Italy. It has less air and cream than traditional ice cream, giving it a denser, richer feel. Gelato also tastes less sweet than ice cream due to its lower sugar content.

Gelato Fortuna

Highly recommended ice-cream shop if you are in Costa Adeje, with very fresh gelato and super tasty flavors. Excellent and creative flavors such as avocado basil. The sorbet dark chocolate and the sorbet pistachio are amazing.

The prices are reasonable and the location is just amazing with a sea view. There are tables to sit and enjoy the sun and watch people passing by. The staff is very friendly and professional, and the owner comes from the renowned ice-cream giant Carpigiani.


Il Gelato del Mercato

Do a walk in the Santa Cruz market or enjoy the same nice ice cream in the Los Cristianos branch. Great quality and taste, gelato made from real and good ingredients at a reasonable price. Pistachio, coffee, and chocolate are all awesome, but you can try the rum and raisin or the vegan chocolate sorbet. Just grab an ice cream as you wander through the market on a hot afternoon.


Il Gelato Puro

Probably the best ice cream in whole Puerto de la Cruz. Super fresh, smoothy, made before your eyes, rich taste, and smell. Huge variety of flavors, try coconut with real coconut pieces. Plus the price is very reasonable: 1.80 euros for a single cup. They also make absolutely delicious bubble waffles with ice cream for 5.50 which is amazing. The staff is incredibly nice too.


Oasis Del Gelato

Real artisan ice cream shop in Costa Adeje, the gelato here is great, portions are big, and prices very reasonable, in particular 1.95 for a small cone and ice cream or 2.95 for a large with 2 flavors. We recommend you the Ferrero flavor and also they have fantastic coffee and very good customer service.


Panna Cioccolato

Hand-made Italian gelato in Los Cristianos, with an amazing creamy texture. Try Cremino (white chocolate and Nutella) and Quesillo which is inspired by a local flan dessert. Or go for the classic pistachio, hazelnut, cheesecake, or mango. You can also see the ice cream laboratory behind the counter where they experiment with flavors. Friendly service and reasonable prices.


Tenerife is known for its delicious sweet treats among the Canary Islands. Gelato, ice cream, and other desserts are abundant here. With the heat of Tenerife’s sun, it’s always time to cool down with a scoop or two of gelato.
