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


  • 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)


  • 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


  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.




Pista Milk



It sounded like a good idea for two childhood besties to get together and scribble their hours long random discussions at one place. With this simple thought, Vernika and Aashima happily present to you their personal notepad prepared with continuous inputs over a 12-hour time zone difference.

  1. 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.
