How To Get Your Hands On Noosa's New Frozen Yogurt Gelato

Dessert lovers will be excited to hear that Noosa is releasing a frozen yogurt gelato, just in time for the summer. The company, known for making yogurt that's so smooth and creamy, it consistently takes the top spot in many yogurt rankings, has now elevated its product line from the dairy case to the freezer section by releasing its first frozen yogurt gelato.

Gelato is a relatively ancient food that goes back centuries. Made by slow-churning whole milk, gelato has a notoriously creamy texture. On the other hand, the process of making Greek yogurt entails eliminating whey (or dairy), an ingredient especially necessary for gelato, per Healthline

So, how did Noosa create gelato from yogurt, if the two items are made in two completely different ways? Well, the company found a way, and it's showing off its hard work with a new product.

Noosa utilizes the natural creaminess of its yogurt to turn it into a dessert. According to the product description on the Noosa website, using its whole-milk yogurt to make gelato results in a "one-of-a-kind find."

Per Food Dive, Noosa will sell its gelato in four flavors: Sea Salt Caramel, Chocolate Fudge, Strawberries and Cream, and Honey Vanilla Bean. Though this dessert might not have the exact ingredients or creation process as its traditional yogurt counterpart, the goal is the same: to provide customers with a "healthier" ice cream alternative that's still a "truly craveable treat." Noosa has also added the live cultures and probiotics into the new frozen yogurt tubs.

Noosa's frozen yogurt can be bought at Whole Foods, Harris Teeter, and Stop & Shop stores nationwide starting in May, per Food Dive, with a 14-ounce tub retailing for around $4.99.
