blackberry pistachio ice cream
3 frozen bananas, broken or chopped in chunks
1/4 C shelled pistachios
in a food processor, blend bananas until smooth, creamy and light. (i've tried this in a blender and the result was not as fluffy.) you may have to stop a few times to scrape down the sides, and if your fp is like mine, you may have to hold the lid on. add pistachios and blackberries and pulse until chunky but incorporated.
the pistachios added a nice crunch, but the flavor was not really there. since i love pistachio flavored ice cream, i'm thinking of getting pistachio oil for next time.
though my next adventure is to try and create my old favorite, vanilla ice cream, with some vanilla bean i recently picked up from whole foods.
what is your favorite ice cream flavor?
