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.
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!
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.
