Pistachio Mint Ice Cream Smoothie – an indulgent and super easy paleo treat.
I really am in love with pistachios. I don’t eat them much because I don’t eat a lot of nuts but when I do, pistachios are my favourites. I was always so in love Pistachio ice cream and Mint ice cream – thinking that these two are somewhat synonymous, I decided to make this Pistachio Mint Ice Cream Smoothie.
I’m so into ice cream smoothies, I call them “Ice Cream” because they’re a frozen treat and “Smoothies” because of the way they’re actually prepared lol.
Let me tell you, this recipe crosses the breakfast and treat borders. You could totally make this into a *greener* smoothie by adding some spinach or kale. Or, if you follow my advice in my Paleo Neapolitan Ice Cream Smoothie, this could be an indulgent dessert.
Don’t forget the chocolate shavings (unless you’re going dairy-free): they are everything! Make sure you source organic chocolate with at least 70% cacao and no soya!
So, I’m in dire need of a whole 30. You know when life happens and you let yourself go to try to deal? Well, life happened lol. In an effort to pull myself together, I’m going straight into April with a whole 30.
Now, I know it’s the 3rd of April but am I the only one that doesn’t like starting projects like this on the first day of the month?
What are your favourite ice cream smoothie flavours?
- 1/4 cup pistachio nuts

For more of an ice cream texture: add your milk in a tablespoon at a time, just enough to allow your machine to process effectively. This depends on the machine you use.
