April was very beautiful this year and the weather treated us well. Spending many warm and sunny days outside in the sun, I had a strong feeling of coming summer and suddenly I felt the taste of ice-cream on my lips. Yes! This is what I was missing to achieve a complete feeling of the summer day.
The summer is so close and who told that vegans shouldn’t enjoy the ice-cream. Those who have been in Italy knows that the most tasty ice-cream in the World is pistachio ice-cream, which has a rich taste of real pistachio nuts. Pistachio ice-cream, that is available in our shops, is just greenish substance, which has nothing in common with pistachios, this is obvious.
But cheer up! You don’t even need any specific equipment to make your own pistachio ice-cream at home. And yes… it is plant-based!
So I had a double motivation to try homemade pistachio ice-cream in order to satisfy all these wishes and ambitions.
Good news! You will need only four main ingredients and few hours of patience to wait until it gets frozen and is ready to eat. But waiting is simple when it is great weather outside and you can pass the time lying out in the sun.

TIP! It is important to use exactly frozen banana, because it helps to achieve puffy consistence and to freeze prepared ice-cream blend faster before it begin to sag and becomes just an ice.
TIP! To have nuts pieces in the ice-cream. Before to blend nuts, divide nut portion in two parts: one part blend with the yoghurt to liquid consistency and another part add together with banana. In this case you will have this crunchy effect with nice pieces of pistachio nuts in the ice-cream.
Let the summer be great together with the most tasty pistachio ice-cream in the World!
