How to Make 4–Ingredient Pistachio Ice Cream
Start by putting the pistachios in a food processor and blitz to become a soft paste. This will take a few minutes so be patient!
In a stand mixer fitted with wire attachment, whisk the heavy cream on high speed for 3 – 4 minutes and just before it completely thickens add the sweetened condensed milk, rose water and pistachio paste. Whisk for another 2 minutes or until hard peek forms. Do not over-mix!
Transfer the mixture to a freezer container. (I used an 8 X 4 inch loaf pan lined with parchment paper). Smooth the top of the mixture and press a piece of wax paper on it to keep ice crystals from forming. Freeze it for at least 4 hours.
Sprinkle with crushed pistachios and serve in a bowl or in waffle cones.
