“What if we capture the beauty of the whole world in ONE big, bold book? A book that will transport readers to countries across the globe, one bedtime story at a time?” AD: What if I told you that book exists? The Book of Cultures is a 120 page book featuring 30 illustrated stories with characters from different countries, alongside activity pages with puzzles and fun facts. With everything going on in the world, now is the time to teach your children how important it is to embrace diverse perspectives, be tolerant and compassionate and understand how to cooperate with people from all corners of the planet. We are all human beings and we all have so much to teach one another. The Book of Cultures is available for the next 15 days on Kickstarter. It’s perfect for ages 3+, and all kids at heart.  @worldwidebuddies #bookofcultures  Pre-order your copy now: www.worldwidebuddies.com  #bookclub #bookobsessed #bookpic #booksbooksbooks #booklife #bookworms #bookstoread #summerjam #summer2020 #readingisfun #readinglist #readingtime #readersofinstagram #ilovereading #instaread #teachkindness #teachthemyoung #colorsplash #streetartist #streetart #wynwoodwalls #miamiart #kickstarter #diversity #diversityandinclusion #loveoneanother #inthistogether #oneworld #beautifulcolors

It’s funny the things that I miss most. Often when the girls achieved something big, we would take them to this little ice cream shop by our home for a treat. But we can’t do that now. Our state is under a stay home order through at least May. And while we don’t NEED to go places, I miss the freedom to be able to do so. I miss not having to disinfect every single grocery item before we can put it away. I miss impromptu trips to Target. ⁣
⁣
But... we haven’t left the house in almost three weeks. Because, eventually we will be able to get back to normal and drive wherever we want and spend money on things we probably don’t need. And our sacrifice for a month or two, or four, is so that our brave health workers and essential employees are not put in any additional danger. And to me, that’s worth the tiny inconvenience of being asked not to leave the house. ⁣
⁣
What do you miss most?⁣

Being forced to stay home for the next who knows how long, is not going to stop us from celebrating the seasons and the various holidays that keep my kids looking forward to traditions like homemade baked goods and fun little crafts. And although there seems to be a huge shortage of all-purpose flour, luckily we had enough in our pantry to create these delicious baked double chocolate chip donuts with fresh banana icing for Spring or Easter! ⁣

After spending this past week looking at our bills, we realized that our mobile bill is way too high. We need to be able to stay connected, but we don’t need to spend a fortune to do it. We just switched Super Dad over to @mintmobile. ⁣

There are so many reasons to love Mint Mobile (and not just because Ryan Reynolds is the owner… yes, that Ryan Reynolds)! Mint Mobile lets you keep your number.

No Churn Pistachio Chocolate Chip and Coconut Ice Cream

Tomorrow is National Pistachio Day! Pistachios are a favorite in our home, so we are always looking for ways to incorporate it into a recipe. Not only are pistachios delicious, but they are also a great source of healthy fats, fiber, protein, antioxidants, and a number of nutrients, including vitamin B6 and thiamine.  That’s a whole lot of benefits for such a small nut! In honor of the pistachio’s special day, we are celebrating with a fun and easy no churn ice cream. This pistachio, chocolate chip and coconut ice cream is so good and so easy to make, you’ll want to have a constant supply in your home.

I was introduced to no churn ice cream last year, when we created one of our most popular recipes, no bake almond joy ice cream pie. It’s funny because I purchased an ice cream maker years ago and only used it once. The result was a disaster and my kids still talk about it. When I found out that you can make ice cream without an ice cream maker, and realized how easy it was, I couldn’t wait to experiment with new flavors. Once you have the base, the flavor possibilities are limitless.

Pistachio ice cream has always been a favorite of mine since I was a kid. While there are a number of ways to flavor your pistachio ice cream base, you’ll find that using pistachios vs. artificial flavors will make a world of difference!

You’ll be creating the flavor in the food processor, which will later be folded into your whipped cream. When frozen, it’s creamy and incredibly delicious! I wanted to find a couple of ingredients that complimented the pistachio and on our second try, we really nailed it!  We love the added crunch of the whole pistachios (you are welcome to chop yours if you prefer) and dark chocolate chips. The amount you add is totally up to you. Remember, you’ll be adding it to the ice cream itself as well as adding more on top before you freeze it. In our house, the more, the better.

No Churn Pistachio, Chocolate Chip and Coconut Ice Cream

This ice cream is packed with pistachios, dark chocolate chips and shredded coconut. So good, it'll taste like you spent hours making it!
Prep Time10 mins
Freezer Time6 hrs
Course: Dessert
Keyword: desserts, family, kid friendly

Equipment

  • Mixer
  • Food Processor or Blender
  • Freezer Container for Ice Cream

Ingredients

Ice Cream

  • 2 cups heavy whipping cream
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 14 oz sweetened condensed milk
  • cup pistachios
  • cup shredded coconut sweetened
  • 6-8 drops green food coloring optional

Ice Cream Toppings

  • ¼ cup pistachios
  • ¼ cup dark chocolate chips
  • ¼ cup shredded coconut sweetened

Instructions

  • Place sweetened condensed milk, pistachios, coconut and food coloring into a food processor or blender. Pulse until combined and pistachios are completely chopped up into tiny pieces.
  • In a separate bowl or in your stand alone mixer, combine heavy whipping cream and vanilla. Beat on medium high for 5-6 minutes, until the whipped cream forms stiff peaks. Do not overmix.
  • Fold pistachio mixture into whipped cream, using a rubber spatula, until it is completely combined (again, don't overmix).
  • Add pistachios, dark chocolate chips and shredded coconut and mix until combined.
  • Pour the mixture into your ice cream container. Make sure it's leveled.
  • Top with toppings, cover and freeze for at least 6 hours.

In the past, I’ve used a couple of containers that we had around the house and always had an issue with them, so this time, I invested in a new insulated ice cream tub. Best $20 I ever spent. It’s the perfect size, so it fits nicely in our freezer, keeps the ice cream fresh and the perfect consistency AND it’s super easy to clean. It also comes in a few different colors, if you’re feeling festive!

I can’t wait for you to try this no churn pistachio, chocolate chip and coconut ice cream. I know you’ll fall in love with it just like we did! Of course, please make sure that no one has a nut allergy before you serve it (I know that may be silly to remind people of, but you can’t be too careful when it comes to allergies!)

Your ice cream will freeze in approximately 6 hours. It’s best that you make it the day before, or the morning before you want to serve it. Our family loves it in a waffle cone (chocolate waffle cones if they have them in your store, ours was out this time).

I can’t wait to hear what you think! Make sure to comment below or tag me on social media! And don’t forget to check out all of our family-friendly favorite recipes!

This no churn pistachio, dark chocolate chip and coconut ice cream is so good and so easy to make, they'll think it's gourmet!
