Maple Pistachio Ice Cream Recipe

If you don’t own an ice cream maker, run, don’t walk, to purchase one right away so you can make this amazing maple pistachio ice cream!

I was truly amazed at how fast, easy and fun making your own ice cream can be!

I can hardly wait to experiment with all sorts of flavor combinations.  Ben and Jerry, you’d better watch your back!

The first flavor I christened my machine with was one that will make your eyes roll back in your head and give a little groan of delight.  I give you now…

Yield – 2 quarts          Prep time: 10 minutes

1 1/3 cups whole milk, well chilled
1 1/8 cups granulated sugar
3 cups heavy cream, well chilled
1 1/2 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
1 1/2 teaspoons maple extract
1/2 teaspoon kosher salt

2 cups shelled and roughly chopped pistachios

-In the bowl of a stand mixer (or in a large bowl with a hand mixer), combine the milk and sugar until the sugar has dissolved (about 1 – 2 minutes).
-Add the heavy cream and the vanilla and maple extracts. Blend.
-Add the salt and the chopped pistachios. Blend.
-Add the mixture into the pre-frozen bowl of your ice cream maker (follow your manufactures instructions), and allow the machine to work it’s magic for approximately 20-25 minutes.
-You now have a soft serve ice cream that is ready to serve, if desired.

-Transfer your soft serve ice cream into a freezer-safe container and freeze for another few hours which will make your ice cream firmer and scoop-able.

Oh, baby!!!! This ice cream will change your life! 

Well, maybe not, but it did make me a believer in all things frozen and creamy. 

So wrong and yet so right!

Until we eat again,
