Vitamix Vanilla Bean & Pistachio Ice-Cream Recipe

Vitamix Vanilla Bean & Pistachio Ice-Cream Recipe …it sounds too good to be true but believe me this recipe will leave your guests wanting more and it is such a breeze to make! Pistachio Nuts are packed with good healthy fats, protein, vitamins and minerals that help keep our heart healthy, our weight management in tack, reducing the risk of┬áhypertension while improving our digestion … so I’m thinkin’ if Pistachio’s are so darn good for us, then I should probably include them into one of my dessert recipes, right?

Can I get a whoop whoop and a heeeeeeeck yes!?

With my taste buds desires the hubby and I got together in the kitchen, whipped out the Vitamix and blended up together some good old fashioned magic. I’ll give credit where credit is due … my hubby knows a things or two about desserts so together we created the perfect flavour.
