This deliciously sweet and creamy Healthy Baklava Ice Cream is laced with raw honey and studded with chopped pistachios and a crunchier, crispier, and more nutritious gluten-free substitute to phyllo dough.  It seriously tastes like baklava swirled into ice cream.

Ingredients

Instructions

  • Freeze your ice cream maker bowl for 24+ hours (I used my KitchenAid ice cream maker attachment).
  • In a blender, add the yogurt, evaporated milk, honey, vanilla extract, stevia extract, and lemon flavor/zest. Blend until smooth.
  • In a small bowl, whisk together the protein powder, xanthan gum, and salt.  With the blender running, slowly add in the dry ingredients.  Blend until smooth, then refrigerate.
  • In a bowl, break the Primizie Crispbreads into small pieces.  Mix in the chopped pistachios.
  • Place the frozen ice cream maker attachment onto the stand mixer and turn on the "stir" speed. Pour the ice cream mixture into the ice cream bowl and churn for ~15 minutes (it will thicken, but not turn into ice cream).
  • Scoop the ice cream mixture into a freezer-safe dish and stir in the crispbread/pistachio mix. Cover and freeze until it's the texture you prefer (~4 hours). Serve and enjoy!

Recipe Notes

After freezing solid, I find the best way to "thaw" the ice cream is in the fridge for a couple hours, rather than sitting on the counter or a quick blast in the microwave.
