Pistachio Avocado Ice Cream [Vegan, Gluten-Free, Refined Sugar-Free]
For the pistachio nut butter:
- 1 cup pistachios
For the ice cream:
- 2 avocados
- 1/4 cup maple syrup
- 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
Prepare the pistachio nut butter:
- Add the pistachios to a food processor and process until they are broken down into a thick and creamy nut butter. This will take approximately 5 minutes, and you may need to stop one or two times to scrape the sides and help it along. Set aside.
Prepare the ice cream:
- Set aside a 9 × 5 loaf pan.
- Add all ingredients for the ice cream to the food processor with the pistachio nut butter, and process until everything is well combined and smooth.
- Pour the ice cream mixture evenly into the loaf pan.
- Tightly cover the loaf pan and place in the freezer overnight, or until the ice cream is firm.
- Store in an air-tight container in the freezer until ready to serve because the ice cream will get soft if left out at room temperature.
