For some, it would’ve been crazy to think that good gelato, yes the Italian ice cream, could save the world. And while that may not be exactly the case, so much good has come out of this culinary project since 2014, when it all started in Carlsbad.

GelatoLove combines traditional Italian gelato
recipes with California’s devotion to healthy,
fresh and local ingredients.

Gelato is a natural Italian dessert food made with essential nutritional elements. It became history during the 14th century Italian Renaissance, when Caterina de’ Medici brought to France her personal gelato chef from Florence.

Italian Renaissance inspired what GelatoLove has become today: a combination of traditional Italian gelato recipes with California’s devotion to healthy, fresh and local ingredients.

GelatoLove is the first gelato maker in the world to make a low sugar gelato made with a revolutionary ingredient, allulose — a nonGMO, FDA approved and rare low-calorie natural sugar that tastes just like the sugar you already know and love. Allulose is found in fruits like figs and kiwis and won’t lead to a sugar crash. Remarkably, GelatoLove contains half the fat and 80% less calories compared to regular ice cream.

GelatoLove’s work through the years was recently recognized with the Trip Advisor Travel Choice Award. This means GelatoLove is rated among the top 10% of restaurants worldwide, and the #1 dessert spot in Carlsbad.

In 2021 GelatoLove and non-profit ProduceGood have partnered again to present ProduceLove, a new gelato line that uses recovered fruit from San Diego orchards. The proceeds from this special Gelato Sale, benefit ProduceGood gleaning programs which rescue 10 tons of edible produce a month to feed the hungry. When 40% of all food is wasted and 1 in 3 San Diegans is food insecure, buying some ProduceLove gelato is a sweet way to help people and our planet!
