At this point, it shouldn’t come as a surprise to anyone that my favourite thing to write about is dessert. I talk about sugar highs and cheat days all the time, which are all our stereotypical associations with the sweet treats we often dig into after a fulfilling meal. It’s rare that you’d hear a dessert being described as healthy unless it’s fruit, I mean, the label ‘guilty pleasure’ had to come from somewhere, right? Either way, it’s rarer that one associates a pint of their favourite gelato or sorbet with being a sugar-free, healthy treat that’s diabetic-friendly, but Kelato Dolce will give you the best of both worlds, without compromising on either.
It’s okay if you’re feeling a little sceptical, because I was, too. The key component, sugar, that makes all desserts so addictive, is substituted by a natural sugar replacement of allulose, erythritol, and monk fruit extract. I’ll admit that it’s difficult to completely replicate the indulgent experience of digging into a sinful pint of full cream, sugar-laden gelato, but Kelato Dolce cuts it pretty close with their low-calorie, low-carb, no-sugar renditions.
What was initially aimed to provide weight watchers with a chance to enjoy a guiltless dessert has expanded to the implementation of a full-refund policy for diabetics who witness a spike in blood sugar reports after consuming Kelato Dolce’s ice cream. They currently offer eight different flavours available in their 8 Flavours Ultimate Assorted Set (S$68), or as Individual Pints (S$16+).
Each pint contains a fraction of calories found in regular ice cream, with their Yuzu Passionfruit Sorbet (S$18) and Açaí Blueberry Sorbet (S$16) containing 11 and 37 calories respectively. It’d be a close call if I had to do a blind taste test for their sorbets in comparison to regular ones made with sugar, and if you know how much I love my dessert, you’ll know that this is worth raising an eyebrow over.
Orders for Kelato Dolce’s various Assorted Sets (S$36+) also come with two low-carb toppings such as sunflower seeds, cacao nibs, toasted coconut flakes, pumpkin seeds and almond nibs—an all-encompassing bundle that doesn’t make you feel like you’ve bitten off more than you can chew by cutting out sugar from your new healthy diet.
Kelato Dolce is offering free doorstep delivery for orders above S$30, with the code ‘SETHLUIREADERS’ for those who are looking to cutting sugar out of their diet and want to see if they can truly give up the real deal.
