Non Dairy Olive Oil Gelato

elea olive oil ice cream

This olive oil ice cream may sound odd, but I guarantee you will love this ice cream and no one will no it is not dairy. You must use a good quality flavorful olive oil to make this ice cream, but it is a great use and you will wow everyone at your table. This is of course a sometimes food, but filled with good fats and so rich and satisfying a little goes a long way. The ice cream sits well for a couple of days in the freezer.
