If you’re used to seeing pistachio ice cream a bright color green, it’s because food coloring makes it that color.

In reality, pistachio ice cream is the color shown here, no food coloring added and totally not necessary.

How To Make Pistachio Ice Cream

Step 1

Start by scraping the seeds from a vanilla bean. Split the vanilla bean down it’s length using a very sharp knife and scrape out the seeds.

Tip: Don’t throw the empty vanilla pod away. You can use it to infuse milk with a subtle vanilla flavor and add it to your coffee.

Ingredients

  • 1 vanilla bean pod *See notes
  • 1 14-ounce canned sweetened condensed milk
  • 2 cups heavy cream , cold
  • 1 cup pistachios , chopped

Instructions

  • Split the vanilla bean down it’s length using a very sharp knife and scrape out the seeds with the tip of the knife.
  • Pour the sweetened condensed milk into a large bowl and stir in the vanilla seeds.
  • In a separate bowl, pour in the heavy cream and whip until stiff peaks form, about 3 minutes.
  • Transfer the whipped cream to the bowl with the sweetened condensed milk and gently fold until completely mixed.

  • Top with remaining ice cream mixture.
  • Using a knife, gently swirl the pistachios into the ice cream.

If you want to use vanilla extract instead of the seeds from a vanilla bean, use 1 teaspoon vanilla extract.
