Dairy-Free Pistachio Ice Cream |No Eggs

Do you love Pistachio Ice Cream? Want to make it dairy-free, without refined sugar or eggs?

You’re in the right place!

I had never made pistachio ice cream before. To be honest, I don’t think I’d eaten it more than a couple of times, but I had some shelled and raw pistachio nuts, and ice cream sounded good so I decided to give it a try.

Dairy-free Pistachio Ice Cream Tips

Toasted Pistachio Nuts for homemade pistachio ice cream
  • Toast or roast your pistachio nuts – I have instructions for toasting them in a pan, but you can also roast them in the oven if you like. Toasting the nuts brings out the rich flavor of the nut.
  • Make sweetened, condened coconut milk as noted in the recipe below. A lot of recipes I saw used eggs to make a custard, but to keep mine egg-free, I made the sweetened, condensed coconut milk. This gives the ice cream the rich, ceamy flavor I wanted. You could make this with all coconut milk without condensing it, but this just gives it an extra boost of flavor.
  • Let the ground pistachips soak in the coconut milk for at least 10 minutes. I allowed them to soak while I made my condensed coconut milk (this recips uses two cans),
  • Strain if you want a smoother ice cream. I wanted the little pieces of nuts in my ice cream so I didn’t strain them out, but if you prefer a smooth texture, or if you find nuts difficult to digest, you could pour the coconut milk and nut mixture through a fine mesh strainer before mixing with the condensed coconut milk
