NYC: Matcha Gelato at L’arte del Gelato

Sorry I haven’t been much of a blogger as of late. Real estate work has me fully consumed (which manages to be both thrilling and exhausting at the same time!), and I’ve barely had a day to sit and breath …brreeeeathhh

But there always is time for gelato.

And will you look at what I recently spotted at my favourite gelateria in the city, L’arte del Gelato…Matcha Gelato! It’s a surprisingly mild, creamy matcha, no intensity of any sort, just clean and simple goodness. If you’re curious, the pale yellow scoop hiding in the back is Banana Gelato. Now that’s intense. A pure, sweet, overripe banana in the luxurious form of frozen cream. Once in big while the owners churn out batches of banana gelato with dark chocolate streaks, like a gorgeous banana stracciatella (only they give it the more boring, straightforward name of Chocolate-Banana Gelato). Either way, deliciousness all around.
