PRLog - June 21, 2012 - NEWPORT BEACH, Calif. -- Newport Beach, CA – Gelato Paradiso is up to something. Their shelves are stacked with ripe mango, pineapple, and raspberries, while their production crew can be seen gliding across the kitchen on banana peels. Cleary, it’s summertime, and Gelato Paradiso is sparing no expense stocking up on fresh fruit for their annual Summer of Sorbetto. Alongside popular gelatos like pistachio and double chocolate, the company’s summer menu will feature fourteen flavors of sorbetto – a refreshing non-dairy alternative combining ripe seasonal fruit, pure water, and a touch of cane sugar.

Because sorbetto’s flavor is derived from fresh ingredients – never artificial sweeteners or taste enhancers – it possesses a fruit-forward quality unmatched by American-style sorbets. Each small batch expresses the natural variations of produce picked in season and no two pans are exactly alike.
Despite a velvety texture that some will find it difficult to believe is lactose-free, the company’s average serving of sorbetto contains less than 120 calories, making it a naturally healthy alternative to dairy-based treats. Those skeptical of its origins can see for themselves. Gelato Paradiso’s sorbettos, as well as their full lineup of artisanal gelatos, are made fresh onsite each morning.
Summer of Sorbetto begins June 21st and lasts through September 20th. This year’s menu will bring back perennial favorites such as Strawberry and Mango, as well as new classics like Passion Mix - a blend of passion fruit, mango, and banana - and Coconut. The full flavor list also includes Pineapple, Watermelon, Orange, Mixed Berry, Guava, Raspberry, Lemon, Cantaloupe, Peach, and Plum.
Since setting up shop in 1999, Gelato Paradiso has been on a mission to produce some of the finest gelatos and sorbettos in the world. Building on authentic Sicilian recipes passed down through generations, the company sources the finest chocolates, extracts, and nuts from Italy, as well as fresh local fruits, to create their hand-crafted treats. Their products are made daily at their shops in Laguna Beach and Newport Beach. Gelato and sorbetto seekers can find directions and a complete menu at http://www.gelatoparadiso.net.
