Pop quiz: The phrase probiotic nut emulsion refers to:
a) Jamie Lee Curtis’s bedtime routine.
b) A not-yet-legal Japanese antiaging serum.
c) Genuto, new vegan gelato made entirely from nuts.
Answer: C, of course. Genuto, the new kid on the ice cream scene, was concocted by a vegan chef and his physician wife. Made in small batches, the creamy treat contains cashews, pistachios, hazelnuts, natural spices and flavors, and a shot of probiotics for prosperity.
The resulting dessert is every bit as rich and dense as its lactose-filled counterpart. We dig the Madagascar vanilla (with only six ingredients), chai latte, and double espresso. And each serving contains a full ounce of nuts minus any milk, eggs, and gluten.
It all makes for a happy constitution.
