Pistachio Milk

Let’s beat the summer heat!
Pistachios are one of the oldest nuts that are used most commonly around the world. The health benefits of pistachios include a healthy heart, weight management and improved digestion.
Sitting in the pale pages of an old cooking journal, I found this recipe today and sharing it gladly with you all.
A: You will love it! πŸ™‚


Pistachio Milk

  • Servings: 2 Jars
  • Difficulty: easy
  • Print

Ingredients

  • Milk – 3 cups
  • Custard powder – 2 teaspoon
  • Pistachio – 9 whole (crushed)
  • Green cardamoms – 6 (deseeded and crushed to powder)
  • Sugar to taste
  • Food colours – Green and Yellow (optional)

Directions

  • Dissolve custard powder in 1/2 cup of cold milk and keep aside.
  • Boil rest of the milk with green cardamom powder for 2-3mins.
  • Add few drops of yellow and green colour. (This step is optional and I use it only if we have some guests arriving at our place.)
  • Slowly add custard powder-milk mixture and keep on stirring.
  • Add sugar (used around 2 serving spoons) and bring to boil. Keep stirring.
  • Add crushed pistachios

Tips:

  1. The milk can be served hot/cold.
    Recommend keeping it in fridge for about 2hrs if want to serve cold.
  2. To make a healthier version, you can use honey instead of sugar and also, can add a handful of chia seeds.


Enjoy!

  1. omg, this sounds delicious! I’ll have to look for custard powder, I’m not sure I’ve seen it before. Would it work with just soaking chia seeds? Yum!

  2. I love pistachios and this looks absolutely delish. Especially for summer time because somehow they are refreshing in summer.

  3. I have had Almond milk many times but never with thought I could do the same with pistachios. I love recipe and I love pistachios. So I going to give this a try

  4. Looks like a really interesting recipe to make with pistachios. I have never tried making nut milk at home, I usually just buy them at the store. However, I know homemade is the best so I will try making this.

  5. I don’t think I’ve had this delicious drink dessert before. I love pistachio ice cream so I think I’d love to try this too.
