Creamy Pistachio Coffee

  • Author: Lauren Grant of Zestful Kitchen

Description

This frothy pistachio coffee is incredibly easy to make and even more delicious. Nutty and frothy, this specialty coffee drink is better than any latte you can get at a coffee shop.


Scale

Ingredients

¼ cup roasted, unsalted pistachios (shelled)

Hot water

1½ cups brewed coffee

1 teaspoon espresso powder

1 tablespoon honey or 1 pitted date

Splash pure vanilla extract

Pinch sea salt

Pinch ground cardamom (optional)


Instructions

Soak pistachios in hot water for at least 1 hour, then rinse and drain. Peel skins from pistachios, then transfer to a blender (preferably a high-powered blender).

Combine coffee, espresso powder, and honey or date in a saucepan; bring to a simmer over medium heat then transfer to blender with pistachios. Add vanilla, salt, and cardamom (if using) blend on high 1 minute.


Notes

You can easily use almonds or cashews in place of pistachios.

I prefer to use roasted because it adds an additional depth of flavor, but opt for unsalted so you can control the salt level to your preference.
