Soft Ice Cream, also known simply as soft serve, is a type of ice cream that is softer than regular ice creams due to air being introduced during the freezing process. It is served at a slightly warmer temperature, which contributes to its soft and smooth texture. This dessert is popular worldwide and comes in various flavors, with vanilla, chocolate, and swirl (a combination of vanilla and chocolate) being among the most common. Soft serve is often dispensed from a machine with a high overrun, which incorporates air into the mix, making it light and creamy.
