WHAT INGREDIENTS DO YOU NEED TO MAKE VEGAN PISTACHIO ICE CREAM?
You need just 6 ingredients to make this delicious dairy free ice cream recipe. That little fact may blown your mind with excitement, but it’s really a super simple recipe.
The ingredients that you need are:
- Full fat canned coconut milk or Store bought vegan whipped topping
- Vegan Condensed Milk (click for recipe)
- Sea Salt
- Vanilla Extract
- Almond Extract
Full amounts are listed in the printable recipe card below.
HOW DO YOU MAKE NO CHURN VEGAN PISTACHIO ICE CREAM?
There are a few steps that you need to do in order to make this, but you don’t need any ice cream makers or other non-standard appliances.
To start, grind up some of the pistachios and set aside. With the remaining pistachios, chop them into small pieces and toast in a skillet for a few minutes.
Then, you need to make your homemade vegan condensed milk.
If you are using store bought vegan condensed milk you can skip that step.
Once you have your condensed milk prepped or ready from the store, then you will start by whipping your coconut whipped topping. Follow the instructions for making it from home or pour out the contents of the tub and whip it.
If you are making it from canned coconut milk, you will whip until stiff peaks form. If you are using store bought, then just blend until smooth consistency.
Next, whip in your vegan condensed milk, salt vanilla extract, almond extract, and the ground pistachios. Fold in the chopped pistachios.
Pour into a reusable ice cream container or freezer safe, air tight container and store at least 6 hours or overnight.
Scoop out amount desired as needed and serve.
CAN I MAKE THIS TOP 8 ALLERGEN FRIENDLY PISTACHIO ICE CREAM?
This recipe contains pistachios as a main ingredient so that itself cannot be omitted. Other than that it can be allergen friendly.
In the main recipe, we are using coconut whipped topping and condensed milk.
So let’s walk through this. We can replace the coconut whipped topping with an almond or rice whip topping depending on allergens. Both of those come in spray cans.
For the vegan condensed milk, we clearly outline how to make it in our linked post with any type of dairy free milk, so you could use oat or flax for Top 8 Allergen Friendly.
Those two switches will make this a Top 8 Allergen free ice cream besides nuts (pistachios).
HOW LONG WILL VEGAN ICE CREAM LAST IN THE FREEZER?
For the most part, as long as you are using products that don’t expire soon, vegan ice cream will last 3-6 months if stored properly. Then again, that’s if it lasts that long!
WHAT STORE BOUGHT PRODUCTS DO YOU USE?
Making this store bought, definitely makes the process go faster. Our preferred products, if no coconut allergy is present, is So Delicious coconut whipped topping in the tub and the canned sweetened condensed coconut milk.
