    pistachio-rosewater gelato (date-sweetened)

    I originally posted this on my blog earlier this year before my family went primal. I just made it again this week, and thought I'd post since it's primal-friendly. (It's nut based, and sweetened only with dates.)



    Pistachio-rosewater gelato (makes approximately 1 pint)

    1 cup raw cashews, soaked overnight, drained

    2 large Medjool dates, pitted, soaked overnight with the cashews, drained

    2/3 cup cold water

    2 tsp rosewater

    pinch sea salt

    1/2 cups raw pistachio meats, divided

    Chop 1/4 cup of the pistachios. Set the chopped and whole pistachio nutmeats aside in a small bowl. Put the cashews, dates, water, rosewater, and sea salt in a blender. Blend at high speed for about 2 minutes, until completely smooth and creamy. Pour into an ice cream maker and freeze according to manufacturer's directions. In the last 5 minutes of freezing, add the whole and chopped pistachios. (Freeze for a final 5 minutes.) Spoon the gelato into an air-tight container and freeze for at least 2 hours, until firm. Take the gelato out of the freezer approximately 5 minutes before serving to allow it to soften just a bit.

    Here's the full post.
