1. 4-Ingredient Pistachio Nice Cream
In a world of chocolate and vanilla, pistachio non-dairy ice cream can be tough to come across. Luckily, you can make your own at home using only four ingredients! This 4-Ingredient Pistachio Nice Cream by Aryane Héroux-Blais is made using vanilla non-dairy milk, frozen bananas, avocado, and raw pistachios, but you would never guess that because the texture is strikingly similar to gelato. Finally, for a cute soft-serve ice cream shape, use a pastry piping bag to make swirls!

This Activated Charcoal Nice Cream by Laura Grosch is super simple, using only 3 ingredients. You could even leave out the nut butter for plain banana ice cream, but it adds some extra creaminess and depth of flavor with fatty nuts. The nut butter of choice this time was homemade brazil nut butter which you get by simply blending 1-2 cups of brazil nuts until smooth and creamy.
