  • Pistachio Butter:
  • ½ cup shelled Roasted Unsalted Wonderful Pistachios
  • 3 tbsp pistachio oil or melted coconut oil
  • Ice Cream:
  • 2/3 cup low sodium 2% cottage cheese
  • 1 cup frozen very ripe bananas
  • 1 tsp matcha powder
  • Agave or honey optional to taste
  • Garnish:
  • Matcha powder sifted for garnish
  • Roasted Unsalted Wonderful Pistachios shelled and minced
  • Passion fruit raspberries, starfruit, or dragon fruit


  • Add the pistachios and oil to a high powdered mini food processor or blender and process until very smooth. Transfer to a bowl.
  • Combine the cottage cheese with the bananas, matcha, agave or honey to taste if using, and 2 tbsp of the pistachio butter. Process until smooth like frozen yogurt.
  • Transfer to a container to freeze if you prefer a scoopable ice-cream like consistency, or transfer to a bowl to enjoy right away for a more soft-serve consistency.
  • Top with additional pistachio butter, a sprinkle of matcha, minced pistachios and fruit.
