Striving for fitness demands dedication, whether it's through hitting the gym, practising yoga, or sticking to strict diets. But let's admit it, we all face those weak moments when our favourite dessert lures us into consuming calorie-loaded delights. Fret not, because there's a brilliant solution. Enter nutritionist and chef Pooja Makhija, who has concocted a healthy recipe for pistachio ice cream, a heavenly delight that satisfies sweet cravings without jeopardising your fitness journey. With just four simple ingredients from your kitchen — hung curd, dates puree, almond butter, and chopped pistachios — you can whip up this divine ice cream. Recently, Pooja Makhija shares a detailed recipe for this easy-to-make treat on her Instagram reel.
In the video, Pooja Makhija effortlessly combines all four ingredients in a bowl. Next, on a plate lined with parchment paper, she skillfully spreads the mixture into round shapes, placing ice cream sticks in them. The delightful creations are then refrigerated until frozen. Once firm, she coats them with melted chocolate, and as a finishing touch, sprinkles chopped pistachios on top. And finally, the pistachio ice cream is now ready to be savoured, a treat that tantalises your taste buds and keeps your fitness goals intact.
In the caption of this video, Makhija writes, “Sorry no exact quantities guys, like I always say I'm no expert chef, just trying to create healthier recipes using an approximation of qualities till I get a product that's healthy yet tasty.”

Pooja Makhija keeps on sharing healthy recipes with her followers. A week ago, she shared the recipe for makhana cupcakes. To whip up these delectable cupcakes, she combined dates, almond butter, crushed makhanas, hot water, and roasted sunflower seeds, giving it a dash of rock salt for that perfect balance of flavours. Once the mixture was ready, she filled the cupcake tray, lined with parchment paper, with this goodness. After freezing, she added a luscious layer of melted ice cream and topped it off with more roasted sunflower seeds. And there you have it - a wholesome and lip-smacking treat served with love in just a few simple steps.
