  • 2/3 cups Greek yogurt I used Fage
  • 2 Tablespoons milk
  • 3 Tablespoons honey
  • green food coloring optional
  • 2/3 cups shelled, unsalted pistachios

For the Pistachio Praline

  • 3/4 cups raw sugar
  • 3 Tablespoons water
  • 2/3 cups shelled, unsalted pistachios


For the Ice Cream

  • Beat together coconut milk, yogurt, milk, and honey until thoroughly combined.
  • Add green food coloring if desired.
  • Pour mixture into the frozen bowl of an ice cream maker. Process according to manufacturer's instructions.
  • Place pistachios into the bowl of a food processor. Pulse until finely chopped.
  • When ice cream is ready, pour the chopped pistachios into the freezer bowl so they mix into the ice cream.
  • Pour ice cream into a freezer safe container and place in the freezer.
  • Ice cream will be soft serve style in about 2 hours, or freeze overnight for traditional ice cream.

For the Praline

  • Heat the water and sugar in a saucepan until it starts to bubble, stirring occasionally until the sugar has dissolved. Gently simmer for 10 minutes without stirring.
  • Remove from heat, and stir in 2/3 cup of whole pistachios.
  • Pour out onto a silpat or parchment paper lined baking sheet. Set aside and allow to cool and harden, about 1 hour.
  • Place hardened praline in a zipper top bag and crush with a rolling pin. Set aside until ready to serve the ice cream.
