When one of our vegan friends spoke about the vegan sorbettos by Ti-Amo in Pune, our first reaction was excitement and a question, “Will the sorbettos be as good as the ones by Mama Mia in Bangalore and Kolkata that we had surveyed earlier!?!”
And the answer is – yes! Just as good and vegany as those from Mama Mia!
Sorbettos, you may know, are the dairy-free equivalents of the traditional ice cream. Sorbetto does not contain milk, cream, or gelatin. It is made from fruit/s (iced fruit puree), sugar, and water – blended with a special technique to result in a rich creamy texture.
Ti-Amo’s Sorbetto flavours
The sorbettos from Ti-Amo do not contain artificial colors and sweeteners, and are available in several flavors: Tropical Fruit Mélange with Kiwi, Passion Fruit, Mango, and Pineapple; Musk Melon; Mango; Limetta (Streaked Green Lime); Guava; Anguria (Watermelon); Limone (Tangy Yellow Lemon); Ananas (Pineapple); and Black Grape. The availability of the flavors change according to the season as only fresh fruits are used.
Ti-Amo Parlors in Pune
You can find the Ti-Amo parlors in Pune by clicking this link. Please note that while each parlor will not have all the Sorbetto flavors; they will, at the least have two of the flavors. We tried the Tropical Fruit Mélange and Musk Melon flavors and they were unbelievably creamy! Chatting with the outlet manager we learned that the demand for sorbettos is growing – they are in fact, in high demand from the 'foreigners' in the city who purchase them in tubs! Just a word of caution: Ti-Amo sells gelato ice creams as well and these contain some percentage of dairy; therefore please ask for the ‘sorbettos’ to make sure you get a vegan deal.
A healthy tasty vegany Sorbetto scoop at Ti-Amo costs Rs.37/- only at the time when this survey was written.
Why do vegans shun dairy and dairy products? In short, they do so for their own health, the health of the animals, and for the health of the Planet. Confused? Well! They are connected. There are many web links that provide you the answer in detail; today we link to an article from the Toronto Vegetarian Association titled, Cow's Milk: A Natural Choice? You can get detailed answers by clicking the name of the article.
“There's no reason to drink cow's milk at any time in your life. It was designed for calves, not humans, and we should all stop drinking it today.” ~Dr. Frank A. Oski, Former Director of Pediatrics, Johns Hopkins University~
