Dreamy Dairy-Free, Vegan Persian Ice Cream

Now vegans and dairy-free dieters can enjoy the dreamy signature blend of saffron, pistachios, and rosewater in this coconut milk-based ice cream. The saffron gives the ice cream a beautiful golden hue; the rosewater imparts a redolent, floral perfume; and the pistachios offer a nice, contrasting crunch to the richness of the coconut milk.
