How to Make Sugar Free Pistachio Ice Cream

I am using a Cuisinart Pure Indulgence Ice Cream Maker. You can half the ingredients to fit your machine if you have a different brand, such as the Ninja Creami, which has smaller freezer bowls.

1 – Follow the product instructions for freezing the bowl ahead of time. The Cuisinart requires the bowl frozen ahead of time, but the Ninja Creami requires the ingredients frozen ahead of time.

2 -Mix the cold ingredients (except the pistachios). Make sure your ingredients are cold before making the ice cream. If the ingredients are not cold, you will get a buildup around the outside of the freezer bowl.

3 – Assemble the ice cream maker.

4 – Turn the ice cream maker on to start churning.

5 – Pour the cold mixture into the top of the ice cream maker.

Helpful Tips and FAQs

Ways to keep Sugar Free Ice Cream Soft.

many people use a teaspoon of Vodka, MCT oil, Xanthan Gum or a little glycerin to lower the freezing point of ice cream. I have found that when I make this recipe the pudding mix does the trick. It is not as soft as store-bought, but leaving it out on the counter for a few minutes will soften it up. If you would like your ice cream a bit softer, you can try one of those ingredients. Only add a small amount, no more than a teaspoon of Vodka, or 1/4 tsp of Xanthan Gum.

Roasting and Salting Pistachio Nuts at home

I find it easiest to buy pre-roasted and salted pistachio nuts that have been shelled. If you would like to do your own pistachio nuts at home, toss them in a little melted butter, sprinkle salt over them and mix them up and then spread them on a parchment-lined baking sheet. Bake them in a 350F oven for about 4 minutes, turn them with a spatula and bake for another couple of minutes. Pistachios burn very easily, so make sure you keep an eye on them. After roasting, allow them to cool and then chop them and use them in our sugar free pistachio ice cream recipe.

Store any unused nuts in a ziploc bag.

Substitutions for the Cream

If you are on a dairy-free diet or have a preference for soy or almond milk, feel free to substitute. Coconut Milk and Coconut Cream work well but do alter the flavour. Use the same measurements.
