Flavored milks are very popular and very much loved in south India. Even at restaurants you will find many types of flavored milk. This pista milk is one among them and very tasty one at that.
I love sipping on some warm flavored milk during winter evenings. Mildly flavored milk that is not heavily sweetened is actually good for undisturbed deep sleep. If you are not very fond of drinking plain milk then do try out this pista milk for a change.
What Is Pistachio Milk?
Pistachio milk is easy to make flavored milk made with unsalted pistachios, sugar and some vanilla. Use whole milk for richer version and for low fat pista milk you can use skimmed milk.
For sweetener I have used unrefined light brown sugar. You can also use regular sugar, honey, palm sugar or any other sweetener.
For flavor you can use saffron, cardamom powder, vanilla, pistachio extract or a pinch of cinnamon powder. I do not prefer to use essence or color in flavored milk recipes.
Serve this drink warm or chilled. This is an excellent energetic drink for toddlers and kids. If you are looking for more flavored milk recipes do check
