Easy pistachio ice cream


  • Process the pistachio nuts along with the sugar in a food processor, until they are completely broken down.
  • Be careful not to process them longer than necessary because the nuts release their oils and because you are beating them along with sugar, it will turn into a cream and you don’t want this to happen.
  • Combine the cornstarch with 1 tablespoon of milk and add it to the mixture. Process for 1 minute to create a smooth paste.
  •  Add the remaining milk and condensed milk to a pot. Bring to a boil over low heat, stirring continuously so that it doesn’t stick on the bottom of the pot.
  • As soon as it comes to a boil, add the pistachio mixture. Mix with a hand whisk and as soon as it comes to a boil again, simmer for 5 minutes, until it starts to thicken. (It will continue to thicken as it cools.)
  • Remove from heat and add the rosewater and food coloring. Stir to combine.
  • Taste the cream and add more rosewater if you like. If you like a stronger color, add more food coloring.
  • Transfer the mixture to a bowl and cover with 2 sheets of plastic wrap. The first sheet should be place directly on the cream. This will prevent the cream from crating a film on top. The second sheet should securely cover the bowl.
  • Allow the cream to reach room temperature and refrigerate. Let it chill completely before placing it in an ice cream maker and follow the directions from the manufacturer.
  • If you don’t have an ice cream maker, place the cream in a metallic bowl and put in the freezer for 4 hours. Remove and mix with a spoon every hour, so that crystals don’t form.
  • Remove from the freezer 20 minutes before serving. Sprinkle with pistachio nuts and serve.
