Pistachio Ice Cream ~ Raw and Vegan Recipe

serves 2 ~ $1.19



ingredients
  • 1 ripe avocado ($.88)
  • 4 ripe bananas ($.60)
  • 2 tablespoons agave ($.20)
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract ($.20)
  • pinch salt
  • 1/4 cup pistachios ($.50)

Fruit and nuts. That's all this is, but it feels like a treat ...

In a food processor with the "S" blade, puree the avocado, bananas, agave, vanilla, and salt until very smooth. This will take a few minutes. Process in an ice cream maker until the consistency of soft serve ice cream. Fold in the pistachios and freeze until firm.

If you don't have an ice cream maker, just freeze the puree and stir every half hour or so until it's firm, adding the pistachios just before firm.

  5. Maybe you could try crushing most of the pistachios with mortar and pestle and incorporate them into the mix, and then add a half dozen or so more pistachios in at the end before it sets.
