Vanilla Pistachio Eggless Ice Cream
When i was a kid i used to experiment a lot of food like making cake in pressure cooker,making north Indian food...My dad was my guinea pig. He enjoyed all my experiments and he used to encourage me a lot. One day he got me a recipe for ice cream,which he got from his Friend who had a bakery. My Dad also got me the stuff needed to make the ice cream. So i followed the recipe and made ice cream. It was a gelatin based recipe .We poured the ice cream mix in the milma ice cream balls and when i took it out after it was set,some thing was not right. Ice cream was wiggly and jiggly like jello. May be i put too much of gelatin,don't know why. There ended my ice cream experimenting.
But after looking at Archy's mango ice cream and Ramya's ice cream recipes ,i was Drooling. So yesterday with my son's help we made the ice cream. Good thing about this ice cream is that you don't need the fancy ice cream maker and eggs.
I got this recipe from a website long time back. I don';t remember the site. But it was for a Vanilla ice cream. I jazzed it up with some pistachio and some food colouring. Here is the recipe
Condensed Milk- 1 can [140z]
Heavy whipping cream-2 cups
Clear Vanilla-1 tbs[ I used Wilton Clear
Toasted Unsalted Pistachios-1/2 cup grinded
coarsely without the skin
Green food colouring - a drop[optional]
In a hand mixer whip the heavy whipping cream
until stiff peak.
In a stainless steel bowl mix together
condensed milk,milk,vanilla and salt.
Gently fold in the whipped cream to the milk
mixture.Add the food colouring and the
pistachio. Mix well.
In a stainless steel container with a lid,pour
the mixture and freeze it.Take it out and stir
2 times in a 2 hour interval. [ie, If you made
the ice cream at 1.00 stir at 3.00 and again at
5.00.].Let it set for 3 more hours or
overnight.Scoop it with an ice cream scooper.
