You know I’m a big fan of easy ice cream, so when the idea for avocado and pistachio ice cream came to mind, I had to make it a no churn recipe.

The best thing about adding avocado to a no churn recipe? It makes it even creamier!

I added a large California Avocado, a little lemon juice, sweetened condensed milk and a package of pistachio pudding mix to a blender and gave it a whirl.

This gorgeous green concoction was ready for a dip into some whipped cream before being placed in the freezer.

I’m not going to pretend that adding the avocado somehow made this ice cream less indulgent… because let’s face it, ice cream is very indulgent.

But I did feel a little better knowing that it had some good avocado fats going into it. 🙂

I also tossed in a handful of salted pistachios before pouring the mixture into the freezer.

Definitely go for the salted pistachios. It added a nice salty sweet flavor to the ice cream. I’m in heaven!

Of course the natural thing to do when you sneak avocado into ice cream is a blind taste test with your kids.

They were at the library with their dad when I was making it, so they had NO IDEA that there was any avocado in there.

The moment of truth… Success! They all LOVED it and nobody even knew that there was avocado in it. The avocado lends it’s green color and creaminess to this pistachio ice cream, while taking on the flavor of pistachio.

No Churn Avocado Pistachio Ice Cream

Ingredients

  • 1 Large California Avocado, pitted and peeled
  • 1 (14oz.) can sweetened condensed milk
  • 1 (3.4oz) package instant pistachio pudding mix
  • 2 tbsp lemon juice
  • 2 cups heavy whipping cream
  • 1/2 cup shelled salted pistachios, roughly chopped

Instructions

  1. Combine the California Avocado, sweetened condensed milk, pudding mix and lemon juice in a blender or food processor. Blend until smooth.
  2. Meanwhile beat the heavy whipping cream until stiff peaks form. Fold in the pistachio mixture until fully combined, then stir in the chopped pistachios.
  3. Pour the mixture into a freezable container (I use a 9×5″ loaf pan). Freeze for at lease 4 to 6 hours, or overnight. Enjoy!

    Hi Shawn, I have a question. What can I substitute the pistachio pudding mix with, seeing as I can't find it where I live in South Africa. Cheers,
  2. Lana
    I was wondering if Shawn or anyone else may have any insight on the results should I leave out the pudding mix? Pistachio gelatto, or frozen yogurt or anything frozen is my favorite flavor, but I tend to dislike the strange artificial flavor of the pudding. And if you haven't already, research info on a delicious South American smoothie treat that is basically coconut milk and avocado. So great, and a perfect breakfast when you are running late! Thank you for any insight, and the no churn recipe! I am off to check out your avocado included lassi!
    1. Hi Lana, I've seen methods of making pistachio ice cream where you can boil pistachios with sugar and milk to extract the pistachio flavor, then grind it up and press it through a fine mesh strainer to incorporate that pistachio flavor into the ice cream. It's quite the process, which is why I chose to go the pudding mix route. But it's definitely doable. Hope that helps!

    This is good but a little too sweet for me. What could I use instead of sweetened condensed milk to cut the sweetness?
    1. I'm not sure what you could use in place of the sweetened condensed milk... maybe cut it in half and use evaporated milk? You'll have to let me know if you try it! :)

    Sounds great! But I live in Canada and I've never seen pistachio pudding mix here! Is there any other way to make it without the mix??? Would it still work?
    1. I used to live in BC and could find the pistachio pudding mix. I would take a look at a Walmart or Save On Foods. Not sure where in Canada you live though... Amazon also has them! :)
  5. Oh my gosh, Shawn, this is just one more reason I wished we lived closer to one another. This is perfection. My love of pistachios knows no bounds. I'm eating some right now as I type. I need to try this. Avocado makes ice cream so much creamier, so I bet this is incredibly smooth and creamy. I'm in love with this one.

    This recipe looks so darn good! The only problem I have. Is the whipped cream. For some reason I can never, I mean never make it come out. I don't have a free standing kitchen aid just a vitamix and a hand held mixer. Any thoughts on this? Suggestions? Julie
    1. You could swap out the whipped cream for cool whip if you want. The trick to making whipped cream is to keep a constant whip on it, turn the bowl, and move your hand mixer around. It takes time, but it will eventually start to thicken up. :)
    2. Heather
      Julie it also helps if your bowl and beaters are chilled in the freezer before whipping. And of course the cream needs to be nice and cold as well (refrigerated). Hope this helps!
