Who doesn’t love chocolate ice cream? With temperatures soaring, it’s usually one of my go-to treats to cool off especially after a long day out. As I’m always on the look for trying new flavors, I’ve decided to try doing it myself and create a perfect chocolate ice cream bowl – with a twist of pistachio. Pairing nuts and chocolate isn’t new, but it’s mostly peanuts, walnuts, or almonds. Pistachios are an amazing healthy snack by themselves; after all they are part of the healthy fat group.

Now mixing them with some delicious chocolate ice cream can create a distinct flavor not easily found in stores. Of course, dark chocolate doesn’t work here, so you’ll need a quality chocolate that is not filled with sugar to sweeten it. I prefer to order chocolates online to get best tasting chocolate, make sure I’m getting the best bang for my buck, and one shop has never failed me so far: Chocolak.com – I recommend going through their selections and picking a smooth-silky chocolate to prepare your ice cream.

Ingredients

  • 3 cups low-fatmilk
  • &frac34 cup sugar
  • 4 egg yolks
  • 100 grams of smooth chocolate- you can buy chocolates online from Chocolak to get high quality chocolates
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 cup of pistachios

Procedure

  • 1

    Place your ice cream maker bowl in the freezer, and in the meantime boil the milk with only half of the sugar.

  • 2

    While waiting for the milk to reach a boil, crack your eggs and separate the egg yolks and whip them with the rest of the sugar in a medium-sized bowl.

  • 3

    Melt the chocolate in the microwave, at 30 second-bursts.

  • 4

    Once melted, add it to the egg yolk and sugar bowl.

  • 5

    Add ½ cup of the hot milk to temper the eggs and whisk well. Now add another ¼ cup and whisk again. Slowly pour the contents of the egg yolk bowl to the rest of the hot milk and stir for 2-3 minutes until the consistency thickens.

  • 4

    Remove from heat and place everything into the frozen bowl, stirring in the vanilla extract. Place in the fridge to cool it overnight.

  • 5

    The next morning, pour the mixture in your ice cream maker and freeze it to desired consistency. Add in the chopped pistachios and serve in a bowl.

    TIP: you can even buy the biscuit cones and scoop your ice cream in them if preferred.
