Healthy Pistachio Rosewater Nice Cream

Pistazieneis, pistachio nice cream, vegan eis

Summer is right around the corner and because I can’t only live on my healthy Magnum or Ben & Jerry’s copycat ice cream, I always try to create nice cream variations (in case you haven’t heard of nice cream yet: it’s simply ice cream made of frozen bananas). So currently I’m in love with this pistachios rosewater ice cream, which is Persian-inspired and therefore tastes refreshingly oriental. It’s super quick and easy to make, which is why I have to stop myself from eating it every day. Actually, this wouldn’t even be a big deal, as this pistachio ice cream is made of three healthy ingredients: besides bananas, which btw you should always keep in your freezer at all times, you’ll need pistachios and rosewater. Lo and behold!
