Ingredients

  • 1 cup of pistachio
  • 4 cups of warm water
  • 1 1sp vanilla
  • ½ tsp cardmom Optional

Instructions

  • Soak the pistachio in warm water overnight (or at least 8 hours).
  • Strain off the water which was used to soak the nuts and discard.
  • Pour the nuts into a blender followed by the four cups of warm water and any spices that you wish to include.
  • Blitz the entire content for one minute.
  • Carefully tip the liquid into a cheesecloth or nut bag and give it a good squeeze. Repeat this process if required until you have separated the pulp from the green hue milk.
  • Pour the pistachio milk into a jug and add the cardamom, vanilla and use accordingly

Notes

  • Soak the pistachios in warm water DO NOT use hot water. While it may seem idea in terms of fast tracking the process, you will be destroying all that goodness.
  • Ideally you want the nuts to soak overnight so they soften naturally. There's no harm in soaking them for several hours instead but the nuts may not be too soft.
  • Try to use a powerful blender such as a Vitamix or Blentec, this equipment is build for pulsing/blending nuts/water.
