Pistachio Ice Cream – Barefeet in the Kitchen

Pistachio Ice Cream? Oh, yeah. Picture a creamy scoop of freshly churned ice cream with a nutty pistachio kick and then picture me trying to resist going back for “just one more taste” all day long. That pretty much sums up this batch of ice cream.

Pistachio Ice Cream

This ice cream combines the cold and creamy sweetness of ice cream with the subtle, earthy flavor of pistachio nuts. There’s a hint of vanilla in the background and it compliments that distinct nutty flavor.

Pistachio ice cream has a unique nuttiness (is that even a word??) to it with the pistachio flavor in the creamy ice cream base and the plentiful nuts sprinkled throughout each scoop. Those nuts bring a fun crunch to every bite.

My family enjoys old-fashioned ice creams very much. Rum Raisin, Tin Roof Sundae, Pralines and Cream, and my grandmother’s Six Three’s Ice Cream are popular favorites. And now, pistachio ice cream has earned a seat at the dessert table too.

And in a surprising-to-me twist, my middle son told me a few days ago that pistachio is his new favorite ice cream flavor. While it’s a bit of an acquired taste for some, we all enjoy it.

Pistachio Ice Cream Recipe

Start by combining the sugar and half the pistachios in a food processor. Pulse and blend until fine crumbs form.

Combine the cream, milk, vanilla, and salt in a mixing bowl and whisk to combine. Add the pistachio and sugar mixture and whisk again to combine.

Pour the mixture into the ice cream maker and process according to the manufacturer’s instructions.

When the ice cream finishes churning, transfer to an airtight freezer-safe container, sprinkling each scoop with the remaining pistachios.

Oh! And if you are lucky enough to wind up with some leftover pistachios, put them to good use in this Baklava recipe. My friend Lynne has made this for me in the past and it’s incredible.

Ice Cream with Nuts

Nut-filled ice creams are a lot of delicious fun with chewy pecans, pistachios, walnuts, almonds, peanuts, or cashews sprinkled throughout each creamy scoop.

Rich and creamy homemade Maple Ice Cream is a real treat with candied walnuts swirled into the mix. And speaking of walnuts, this Black Walnut Ice Cream is a sweet and fragrant old-fashioned delight.

Chopped fudge pieces and salty, chocolate-covered peanuts dance through swirls of rich fudge sauce in this Tin Roof Sundae Ice Cream. Homemade Rocky Road Ice Cream is rich chocolate and almond-flavored ice cream loaded with chewy marshmallows, crunchy almonds, and flecks of chocolate.

Peanut Brittle Ice Cream turned out even better than I imagined it would when I first had the idea for it. It’s a creamy vanilla ice cream with a hint of cinnamon and plenty of finely crushed crunchy peanut brittle.

Rich banana ice cream, decadent chocolate chunks, and crunchy walnuts create a tantalizing dessert you won’t soon forget. Chunky Monkey Ice Cream is a fun indulgence for kids and adults alike.

Creamy chocolate ice cream filled with chocolate-covered cashews and swirled throughout with caramel sauce adds up to bowls of Bear Claw Ice Cream that no one can resist.

And last but never the least is my beloved Pralines and Cream Ice Cream. Creamy, vanilla ice cream swirled with buttery sweet salted caramel and generously sprinkled with chunks of chewy praline pecans is an old-fashioned ice cream lover’s dream come true.
