Ice Cream with Pistachios and Gluten Free


Can we all agree that there’s not much better than ice cream or gelato when it’s warm out? Just a small scoop is all you need of this creamy Ice Cream with Pistachios and Gluten Free. It’s flavor is gentle but definitely present, combined with the rich texture of this uncooked ice cream, it’s heavenly.

Plus, we love pistachio nuts here. The flavor is so unique and unlike other nuts. The color of the nut is fresh, natural, and vibrant.

Favorite flavors of ice cream

There are a few flavors of ice cream that I’d have a hard time living without: coffee or espresso bean! But just behind that is pistachio ice cream. It’s for a long time been a favorite of mine. Now, I can eat this Ice Cream with Pistachios and Gluten Free and not have to worry if it contains hidden gluten. Pistachio ice cream is not a flavor many companies make, let alone finding it made gluten free. It’s often difficult to find labeling on ice cream, as well.

Subtle color, but nice flavor

Although it’s not as green as I’d originally hoped for, it does have nice pistachio flavor. And the color has hints of green, not intense, but instead a more natural yellow green color of the nut. You could always use a few drops of food color. I sometimes just prefer natural ingredients, and I didn’t have any green natural food color on hand.

Then you have the texture of this low sugar and gluten free ice cream.

Reusing containers

Question, does anyone else reuse the Talenti Gelato containers? We eat a lot of ice cream here, so I always have spare ones. They pack up and freeze homemade ice cream so nicely! Talenti makes some of the best ice cream also, for those days when homemade is not an option. Also, many of their flavors are labeled gluten free. They as well make some good dairy free options. Now on their website they have a side bar where you can select “gluten free”, “dairy free”, “egg free”, or even “new” to see all the options for that category!

Not dairy free but it is egg free

While this Ice Cream with Pistachios does contain dairy and cream, it doesn’t contain any eggs. It also has less processed sugars, replacing some of the sugars with pure maple syrup. If you are looking for a dairy free option, try our Refreshing Dairy Free and Gluten Free Strawberry Sorbetto recipe. It’s delicious too, and contains much less fat as well.
