Freddo Helado

Argentine ice-cream company Freddo Helado has been churning out crafted frozen delights since 1969. The company has landed in Miami Beach and features frozen treats made with fresh, hormone-free milk, pure cane sugar, fruits, and other natural and raw ingredients. The helados, free of any artificial flavorings, colorings, preservatives, or added vegetable fats, are made in Argentina and shipped to Miami — a process that takes about a month in climate-controlled conditions. The helado is available in a multitude of flavors, including dulce de leche, dark chocolate, white chocolate, chocolate freddo, vanilla, and zabaione, and is supercreamy and silky — more akin to gelato than American ice cream. It's also less sugar-laden, especially the zabaione and nougat flavors. Cones are carefully shaped into a perfect point from your choice of flavors. To-go containers are also available. The buzz-worthiest item is the helado panini, a Hawaiian roll half filled with helado and toppings and then flash-pressed. In 15 seconds, the roll halves are sealed and warmed, but the ice cream doesn't have time to melt. The result is the ultimate ice-cream sandwich — warm and soft on the outside, creamy and cool on the inside. Is it an ice-creamy jelly doughnut? A dessert pressed sandwich? Who knows, but it could be Miami's version of the cronut in popularity.Read our full review.
