St. Patrick’s Day is almost here, and that means green EVERYTHING. If you’re looking for the perfect way to follow up your meal of shepherd’s pie or corned beef and cabbage and festive green beverages, try out this tasty green dessert for the win! A scrumptious pistachio ice cream cake is the most perfect and refreshing way to celebrate your Irish heritage (or your “Irish for a day” heritage), and is a perfect recipe for your RV kitchen! Unfortunately, a leprechaun won’t sneak in and whip up this dessert for you, so here’s how to make your own pistachio ice cream cake!
What You’ll Need:
For the crust:
- 10 sandwich cookies (bonus points if you can find cookies with green wafers or cream for an extra pop of color!)
- 3 Tbsp. butter, melted
For the filling:
- 2-3 pints of pistachio ice cream (the greener the better, or make your own!)
For the ganache:
- 4 oz. bittersweet chocolate
- 4 oz. heavy cream
- ¼ C. pistachios, roughly chopped
- 7-inch springform pan
How delicious is this festive pistachio ice cream cake? It’s cool, refreshing, and joyously yummy! This basic recipe uses brown chocolate, but it’s versatile and easily modified. Use golden sandwich cookies instead of the regular chocolate ones, and top with a white chocolate ganache or even simple whipped cream tinted with green food coloring to go all out for the green dessert win!
