The big difference between ice cream and gelato is that gelato is made with milk instead of cream. Believe it or not, you still get a big pistachio flavor without the nuts. I added mine back in because we love nuts.

Prep Time: 15 minutes

Cook Time: 2 minutes

Allow This Time in Freezer: 2 hours

Total Time: 2 hours, 17 minutes

Yield: Makes 1 Quart


  • 3 cups whole milk
  • 3/4 cup sugar
  • 1 cup pistachio nuts, finely chopped
  • green food coloring, optional (as you can tell, I didn't use any)


Combine milk and sugar in saucepan. Bring to a boil. Remove from the heat and stir in nuts. Allow to come to cool. Refrigerate for at least 2 hours or overnight. Pour through strainer to remove nuts. Freeze according to ice cream maker’s directions.
