I love ice cream, who doesn't? I can eat it whatever the weather. It can be cooling and fleshing on a hot day or the ultimate comfort food whilst tucked up watching a movie. It make a great get ahead dessert at a dinner party and can easily be jazzed up with shop brought biscuits sauces, not forgetting the wonderful Affogato post dinner.
I managed to get hold of raw peeled pistachios from amazon. But unpeeled are fine, you will just get a lighter green colour. But it will taste just as delicious. I also like to add Almond extract to enhance the nuttiness, but this is optional.
approx 1 litre
2 tins full fat coconut milk
1 ½ cups raw pistachio, soaked in water for a few hours. Drained and rinsed.
¾ cup rice syrup you could sub as you wish
1 tbsp. almond extract NOT essence. (Optional)
1 tbsp. arrowroot
2 tsp vanilla extract or paste
Small handful of regular pistachios roughly chopped to garnish
