Homemade Pistachio Ice Cream Recipe (Nutty & Creamy)

I go literally nuts when I think of pistachio ice cream, it's my favorite ice cream flavor.. Love this recipe because it's so easy to make and super yummy.. Has that nutty pistachio flavor and the creaminess of the blended creams keeps you wanting more. 

Pistachio ice cream also known as "Pista Ice Cream" was invented during the 1940's by a man called James Wood Parkinson from Philadelphia.

Since then many variations of pistachio ice cream have evolved especially in countries like France and Italy. In this ice cream recipe we used a few simple ingredients that blend well together. On top of that we added some crushed pistachio nuts.. A sweet delight!
