Paciugo Gelato Caffè Adds Gelato-Inspired Smoothies for the Summertime

REAL Mango Passion Fruit, Strawberry Banana and Wildberries, all Infused with The World’s Best Gelato, Are Featured at Paciugo

Smoothies are getting real this summer at Paciugo.

Paciugo Gelato Caffè, the Dallas-based specialty brand best known for its authentic Italian gelato, is giving Smoothie lovers some flavorful choices, as it boldly creates high quality, fresh and natural sorbet-inspired creations as only Paciugo can.

Paciugo has announced three delicious Smoothie creations, perfect for summertime. Mango Passion Fruit, Strawberry Banana and Wildberries, will be featured through Sunday, July 13. The Smoothies are available in 12-oz, 16-oz and 20-oz sizes and range between $3.79 and $5.79.

The secret to Paciugo Smoothies is in their real fruit sorbet, which is handcrafted daily at every shop, using fresh fruits of the highest quality, from around the world. These unique frozen beverages are traditional Smoothies, blended with delicious sorbet and real fruit.

“While we use our famous gelato in almost everything we make, there is more to Paciugo than just gelato,” said Diego Comparin, Paciugo Vice President of Research and Development. “Our Real Fruit Smoothies are handcrafted with fruits that we simply obsess over. We always stay true to our culinary roots and heritage of the Paciugo brand but we also challenge ourselves to expand our offerings. The result is a wide variety of incredibly delicious, unique, sorbet inspired fruit Smoothies that you’ll only find at Paciugo.”

With nearly 400 recipes in its portfolio, 44 Paciugo Gelato Caffè locations in 16 states each serve an assortment of 32- 40 gelato and sorbet flavors, made fresh daily at all gelato caffès. This means Paciugo’s Smoothies can be served as any number of flavors.

Paciugo Gelato Caffè was founded in 2000 when Ugo, Cristiana and Vincent Ginatta, inspired by their passion of bringing Italian gelato to America, moved to Dallas, Texas and opened their first gelateria. Since then, the company has grown to 44 locations in 16 states. Paciugo offers more than 30 flavors daily of gelato that are handcrafted every morning at each neighborhood location. To complement their unique gelato, Paciugo offers gelato-inspired shakes, smoothies, espresso-based drinks, iced coffees, Gelattes and artisanal favorites like affogato, hot chocolate, Arabica coffee and Italian roast coffee.  For more information, visit or follow Paciugo on Facebook and Twitter @PaciugoTweets.  Prospective franchise partners should visit
