The UK’s first-ever breakfast gelato menu has launched at Comboco in Soho, London.
There’s cereal milk gelato flavour, inspired by the sweet, starchy milk Americans are fond of adding to their breakfast bowls.
Then there is the unusual pancakes and maple syrup flavor, as well as toast with whipped butter.
For those on a diet, frozen yoghurt with granola may be the ideal option, and for those nursing a hangover, there are few more bracing starts to the day than a Bloody Mary gelato. The cocktail is re-imagined as an ice cool tomato sorbet, spiked with Tabasco and a heady hit of Worcestershire Sauce.
Customers can put some rocket fuel into their day with a rich coffee ice cream, the double espresso gelato.
Depending on the recipe and the person making it, dairy-based gelato contains around 16-24% sugar and 100g of the sugary treat packs around 216 calories.
However, while the breakfast ice cream may not aid dieters, it is said to help cure hangovers.
The cold effect causes more blood to be sent to the brain as a defense mechanism to try to keep the brain warm.
The increased circulation is said to help your brain recover from the dreaded booze-fuelled night before.
Also on offer for £3 ($5) a scoop at Comboco are other eccentric varieties such as the rich avocado, pear and gorgonzola, the mind-boggling scrambled eggs and, for those with more expensive taste, the opulent truffle oil and mushroom gelato, alongside more traditional flavors, such as bronte pistachio, kentish strawberry and Madagascan vanilla.
Comboco was founded by ex-City worker, Ashish Saggar, and have previously created special flavors for Pacha’s launch for River Island.
Speaking about their innovative new offering, the Comboco team said: “Our Breakfast Gelato Menu is a bit of fun to cheer up the Capital after this dull start to the summer.
“Every flavor is made using the finest organic milk but we don’t recommend that city dwellers enjoy this indulgent treat every day…it’s just for special occasions!”
