Low Carb Halvah Ice Cream

One of the simplest halvah recipes I’ve found is sesame paste (a.k.a tahini), honey, vanilla, and pistachios. Converting this into an ice cream is straightforward. I start with my Philadelphia ice cream base, add tahini, honey flavoring, vanilla extract, and pistachio nutmeats from Trader Joe’s. One word of advice: do not add any stabilizers to the mix unless you want a gooey paste of an ice cream. The tahini adds plenty of body on its own.
