Recipe: Dr. Jiwani’s Pistachio Ice Cream: Dairy-Free, Sugar-Free, Paleo, Keto, Low Carb

(Dairy-Free, Sugar-Free, Soy-Free, Gluten-Free & Corn-Free)

Summer Means Ice Cream!

Beat the heat with Dr. Jiwani’s Pistachio Ice Cream for a cold, sweet dessert. As the temperatures escalate, it’s hard to resist the smooth, creamy coldness of ice cream. The problem lies in the many allergies commonly found in store bought ice cream. Typical ingredients in ice cream make it an allergy, sugar & preservative nightmare.

The Horrors of Store Bought Ice Cream

Store bought ice cream ingredients include milk, sugar, corn syrup, cream, cacao, whey, mono and diglycerides, carob bean gum, guar gum, carrageenan, natural flavor, annatto (for color), vitamin A palmitate & tara gum. This means it may contain food allergies such as dairy, sugar cane, cacao (chocolate), legumes (soy family), corn, gluten & unknown chemicals (natural flavor).

The Cold Creaminess without the Carbs

I chose coconut milk to make this ice cream instead of other recipes using bananas, cashews, avocado & almond milk as they contain potential allergens, more carbs and tend not have the true ice cream taste & texture. The few ingredients within Dr. Jiwani’s Pistachio Ice Cream make it a simple, healthy & elegant dessert.

Pistachio Ice Cream: No Allergens & No Carbs

Dr. Jiwani’s Pistachio Ice Cream is ideal for those looking for a cool, creamy treat without the sugar, chemicals & allergens, while Dairy-Free, Low Carb, Gluten-Free, Egg-Free, Soy-Free, Corn-Free, suitable even for those following Paleo, Keto, Vegan & Grain-Free Diets. Pistachio ice cream has an incredibly delectable flavour, while being so healthy when homemade in a nutritional way.

Pistachios For Weight Loss

Pistachios are ancient nuts eaten by man as early as 6,000 BC. These tree nuts are packed with healthy fats, protein & minerals. In fact, pistachios have the highest amount of protein (6 grams per 1/8 cup) and lowest fat (13 grams per 1/8 cup) of all nuts. This makes pistachio a nutritious snack for overall health, weight loss & heart health.
