Frozen Yogurt, as the second highest in sales for frozen desserts, claiming about 4% of sales, frozen yogurt is the conglomerate of an ice cream base with yogurt cultures. As a result, frozen yogurt reaps the flavor and texture benefits of both a sweet, cold ice cream and tangy, smooth yogurt! Also, because there is less fattiness than ice cream, frozen yogurt has less overrun (or added air), resulting in that distinguishing creamy texture. The added bonus of using live cultures is that they help promote a healthy digestive tract. The Spaceman Soft Serve Machines are perfect for creating custard, ice cream, AND frozen yogurt, making it an easy choice if you plan to serve any of these frozen desserts. When you can cut out the addition of extra pieces of equipment, you save money and space in your kitchen.
Freezer Types. Gelato cabinets and ice cream dipping cabinets are pretty common freezer choices, but they vary slightly. True gelato cabinets present gelato in trays in a display case, whereas ice cream is often displayed in tubs. Since gelato is served and stored at a warmer temperature, gelato cabinets are designed to accommodate this. If you serve ice cream out of a gelato cabinet or vice versa, you will probably find yourself serving your product at the wrong consistency. You don’t want to get a reputation for serving melted ice cream or hard-as-a-rock gelato, so it’s best to serve each item from their respective cabinets.
