This is rich! If you prefer, you can omit a can of sweetened condensed milk or reduce the amount of half-and-half.

How To Make pistachio ice cream

  • 1
    Finely chop pistachios in a food processor. Combine 2 cups milk and chopped pistachios in a saucepan. Slowly bring to a boil, stirring frequently. Remove from heat. Allow to cool, then chill in fridge for 2 hours.
  • 2
    Remove nut and milk mixture to a mixing bowl. Combine half-and-half, sweetened condensed milk, and pudding. Stir well, trying not to allow lump of pudding to remain.
  • 3
    Pour mixture into the bucket of ice cream freezer. Fill bucket to fill line with milk. Insert dasher and put the lid on the bucket.
  • 4
    Place the bucket in ice "tub." Attach the motor and plug in. Alternately add ice and rock salt around the bucket. I recommend using crushed and a heavy hand with the salt. This will give the ice cream a creamier consistency. The ice cream is finished when the motor can no longer move the dasher in the bucket. Remove any leftover ice cream to a separate container to put in your freezer. Do not put ice cream bucket in freezer.
