What does Pistachio Milk Taste Like?
Unlike almond milk, which has a neutral taste, and oat milk, which bears resemblance to blended paper, pistachio milk tastes of… Yes, you guessed it: pistachios! Besides its pastel green complexion which gives matcha and celery shots a run for their money, pistachio milk has a mild yet rich nutty flavor of its whole counterpart. It pairs well with certain spices like cinnamon, nutmeg, and cardamom, and is complimented by honey, dates, and maple syrup.
Pistachio milk is already famous for its naturally creamier texture, which makes it an excellent replacement for oat milk in non-milk lattes.

Pistachio milk is versatile and adds an exciting flavor profile to your cereal, coffee, or dessert.
Does Pistachio Milk Taste Good?
Taste is wildly subjective. If you like the taste of pistachios, chances are you will like the taste of pistachio milk. If you’re a milk purist who insists all plant milks should be spelt ‘mylk’ venturing into the alt-milk world for the first then, then pistachio milk would be quite a daredevil move. In any case, pistachio milk tastes good if your tongue has a tickling for all things nutty and creamy.

If you’re looking to match the nutritional content of cow’s milk with any non-fortified plant-based milk, then tough luck. However, no plant-milk is unhealthy if there are no added sweeteners and oils. An 180ml serving of pistachio milk contains about 70 calories, 4g of carbohydrates, 2g of protein, and 5g of total fat. It’s rich in vitamins A, B2 and B6, plus minerals iron and calcium.
Pistachio milk that you make from scratch is even more healthy because it is free from added preservatives, emulsifiers, thickening agents etc. Just pistachios and water, unless you want to add a natural sweetener like dates, honey, or maple syrup, which you can control to your liking.

If you answered ‘yes’ to one or more of these, then you should try pistachio milk. Seriously, it looks and tastes like nothing you’ve seen before.
