Pistachio Ice Cream

This is one of my favorite flavors of ice cream to make. I don’t make it a lot since pistachio nuts are so expensive and it is high in calories. Today I let the dogs lick the ice cream spinner which made me very popular.

Pistachio Ice Cream

  • 2 cup heavy cream
  • 1 cup half & half
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 1 cup chopped pistachio nuts
  • 1 tsp vanilla

Chop the pistachio nuts in the food processor leaving some large chunks of nuts. In a large mixing bowl stir together all the ingredients. Add to the freezer bowl and spin for 20 minutes. Scoop into a quart container and place the ice cream in the freezer and set up for at least 2 hours. I use a Cuisinart Frozen Yogurt-Ice Cream & Sorbet Maker. It’s simple and easy to use. The containers to store the ice cream I purchase from sweet bliss containers on Amazon.

Cherry & Chocolate Chunk Ice Cream

This ice cream is as good as it is pretty. I like to experiment with my ice cream maker trying out combinations. One summer a friend gave me a box of peaches. One of the recipes I experimented with was peach cobbler ice cream. Yum! I use a Cuisinart Frozen Yogurt-Ice Cream & Sorbet Maker. It’s simple and easy to use. The containers to store the ice cream I purchase from sweet bliss containers on Amazon.

Cherry & Chocolate Chunk Ice Cream

  • 2 cups whipping cream
  • 1 cup milk
  • 3/4 cup sugar
  • 1 cup dark chocolate chopped
  • 1 cup bing cherries sliced in half
  • 1 Tbsp vanilla

Mix the whipping cream, milk vanilla and sugar in a bowl, add the cherries and chocolate. Pour the liquid into the ice cream freezer bowl and turn it on. Let it thicken which should take about 2o minutes. Scoop out into your ice cream container and let it freeze for two hours. If you cannot wait, you can eat it right away.
