Now on to the recipe! No cook homemade Pistachio Icecream
The base is pretty straightforward – heavy-cream + condensed milk + flavor of your choice creates the most luscious, and delicious ice cream. But if you are looking for that authentic melt-in-your-mouth taste then add milk powder to this combo and you will end up with a rich, creamy and velvety ice cream flavor! Perfecto!!
Homemade whipped cream can be substituted with store bought cool whip. I have added a pinch of green color to my pistachio ice cream but feel free to double the amount and give this treat a rich pistachio color. Likewise, pistachio essence can be used in place of kewra essence.
Mix and freeze. Once frozen, homemade ice cream has a tendency to solidify into a rock, but this recipe remains soft enough for an easy scoop out.
Some important tips to avoid ice crystals and freezer burn on ice cream !
- Cover your container tightly. If your container doesn’t have a cover, wrap it tightly with a plastic wrap and then with a foil.
- Store your ice cream in the very back of the freezer. Every time the freezer is opened, warm air gushes in, causing the ice cream to melt and then it refreezes back again. During all this thaw and refreeze, some of the ice crystals trapped inside melts and result in crystallization.
- Ice cream is best stored below 0°F (-17 degree C) above that will result in crystallization.
- There should be no change in temperature during freezing.
