    Sue Lau's Note:

    Posted for the ZWT4-- Frozen Italian Dessert Challenge-- Part 1, this is an unusual and unique gelato recipe with some ingredients that are not necessarily traditional. Although lemon and pistachio are typical of fine Italian cuisine by their Mediterranean character, the ingredients take a curve ball by using both buttermilk and lemon yogurt to give both a solid base and a nice tartness to accentuate the lemon flavor. The Splenda was made as an option to accomodate those with special dietary needs,and the egg yolks and heavy cream, while not traditional, provide richness and act as a stabilzer for this yummy frozen dessert.

      Wow! I already know how to make a gelato! I used the Muller brand (this is a great one too if not better) since we didn't have the Dannon then I followed recipe as is except that I didn't use an ice cream maker. I chilled it then froze it. When I took it out, I waited for 3 minutes before scooping it out and boy, they were creamy! Yeah the texture's perfect and much better than other ice creams that get watery when melted. The taste is sooo good too! It has a sweet lemony taste and the addition of pistachios really upped the flavors! I guess it helped that when doing the first steps, the mixture should be really thick before taking it out as stated in the procedure. Thanks! Made for WZT4.
