Blood orange sorbet from Cafe Bella Rue. Kathy Stephenson | The Salt Lake Tribune

Throughout the month of August, Tribune writers are tasting our way through some of Utah’s finest frozen confections including ice cream, gelato, frozen yogurt and shave ice in an effort to beat the heat. Today’s pick:

Blood orange gelato • This refreshing Italian sorbetto is made with Arancia Rossa, the red oranges of Sicily. The sweet citrus flavor and a beautiful pink color offer candy for the eyes and the taste buds.

Cafe Bella Rue • 11259 Kestrel Rise Rd., South Jordan; 801-254-9500. Open Monday-Thursday 10 a.m. to 9 p.m.; Friday-Saturday, 10 a.m. to 10 p.m.

Price • $2.70 for one regular-size scoop.

Shop talk • Reader Laurie Merideth introduced us to Daybreak’s Café Bella Rue, formerly called San Gelato. The European-style bistro serves sandwiches, soups, salads and pizza, plus nearly three dozen flavors of gelato and sorbetto. Customers who want something decadent should try the “festivos,” a blend of traditional and soft- serve gelato with choice of mix ins such as crumbled cookies, candy bars, cake and fruit chunks.
