No Churn Dairy-Free Pistachio Ice Cream

You have heard of green juice and green smoothies, but who has ever heard of getting your greens from ICE CREAM? Inconceivable! Yet totally awesome!

It’s true! This pistachio ice cream recipe contains one full serving of leafy greens. We’ll wait while your mind explodes.

The leafy greens not only help achieve that iconic green color of pistachio ice cream, but they put a healthy spin on dessert. So, now you don’t have to feel any guilt whatsoever in having a few (or more!) scoops.

Leafy greens would be your spinach, arugula, Swiss chard, and kale. Those green leaves give quite the punch of vitamins and minerals!

This group of vegetables contains vitamins, minerals, and carotenoids that act as antioxidants. Antioxidants help remove free radicals from the body before they have a chance to become harmful.

Green leafy veggies contain vitamins C and K and minerals iron and calcium. Dark green leafy vegetables are also an amazing source of fiber and folate. To absorb the carotenoids and vitamin K, the body needs a small amount of dietary fat to go with the dark green leaves. This is achieved with the almond butter in the ice cream recipe.

This ice cream recipe is also free of coconut, banana, and cashew, which dominate the dairy free ice cream recipes that are out there. It also doesn’t require an ice cream maker! If you have any doubt, this No Churn Dairy-Free Pistachio Ice Cream is still rich, creamy, and naturally sweetened, thanks to the almond butter and dates.

Almond butter is a great source of healthy fat. It’s made mostly of unsaturated fatty acids, which help improve blood cholesterol levels. Fats are also a great energy source. Almond butter is another fabulous source of vitamins and minerals, such as vitamin E and magnesium.

Make this in the morning, and by the time dessert rolls around, you will have a beautiful, decadently rich, sweet treat waiting for you. Share it with a friend for a night in, or scoop it on a cone for the kids. Vegetables + Dessert = Genius!
