Disclaimer: This is a healthy version of pistachio ice cream so it will not taste like the ice cream you’d buy at the store. It’s meant to be a base for you to create your own! If you’d like to make it vegan, use coconut milk instead of half and half. If you’d like it creamier, use more half and half, cream and/or use frozen milk cubes instead of ice cubes, etc. Like it sweeter? Use sweetened condensed milk and/or add more sugar. Not a huge fan of almond flavor? Use less almond extract. Don’t want pieces of pistachio? Blend it longer! Share your version of this with us on the recipe page.
