This is a recipe I made with some dear pals when the weather was still warm enough to justify milkshakes. While that is no longer the case and woe is me, this is an indulging and smooth drink to SHAKE things up a bit. While a little unconventional, coconut and pistachio are a match made in flavors I like heaven. Anyone else feeling a little…nutty?
Coconut pistachio milkshake
3/4 cup pistachios
1 can coconut milk (frozen)
1/2 cup soy milk
1/3 cup sugar (brown, white, turbinado, whatevah)
Add the pistachios, frozen coconut milk, soy milk and sugar to a blender. Blend until the pistachios are finely chopped and the drink has a smooth, thick consistency (add a handful of ice to thicken up if necessary). Add sugar to taste and sip slowly to avoid brainfreeze!
