Pistachio Milk Recipe

I have been making pistachio milk for a while now and I can tell you from my own experience this milk has a unique light green color, with a nutty flavor and of course an amazing taste. One thing I do have to say is that when you make this milk, if you want it to have a stronger taste, store it in the fridge for about 8 hours before drinking it. This way the ingredients really get a chance to mix together for a stronger taste.

Another way is drinking the milk immediately after blending, it also tastes really good and since it’s just coming right out of the blender, it is warm. I have also listed for you, all the amazing benefits of this milk, so have fun reading it while drinking your homemade pistachio milk!


Benefits of Pistachio Milk & Pistachios

Heart health is promoted by the presence of beneficial fats such as monounsaturated and polyunsaturated fats in pistachios. Additionally, their rich content of antioxidants like lutein and zeaxanthin can mitigate the risk of heart disease by thwarting the oxidation of cholesterol.

Despite their calorie density, research indicates that pistachios could support weight management efforts. Their blend of protein, fiber, and healthy fats promotes feelings of fullness, potentially resulting in decreased calorie consumption over the course of the day.


For eye health, the antioxidants lutein and zeaxanthin present in pistachios offer significant benefits. These antioxidants play a protective role against age-related macular degeneration (AMD), a primary cause of vision impairment among older individuals.
Enhanced cholesterol levels can be achieved through pistachio consumption, as it may elevate “good” HDL cholesterol while decreasing “bad” LDL cholesterol levels.
Some studies indicate that pistachios might contribute to reducing inflammation within the body owing to their antioxidant and anti-inflammatory characteristics.
