About This Recipe

Pistachio milkshake is a creamy beverage made by blending pistachios with milk and ice cream. It has a rich, nutty flavor with a hint of sweetness. The resulting mixture is decadent, smooth, and thick. Some varieties of pistachio milkshakes may also include additional ingredients such as vanilla extract, cocoa powder, chocolate chips, or spices like cinnamon.

Why You Will Love Pistachio Shake

  • Creamy and rich: The combination of pistachios and ice cream creates a smooth and creamy texture that is an incredibly refreshing treat to sip on a hot day.
  • Nutty flavor: Pistachios have a naturally nutty and slightly sweet flavor, which pairs well with vanilla ice cream.
  • Customizable: Pistachio milkshakes can be easily customized by adding extra ingredients like cocoa powder, vanilla extract, caramel sauce, or spices to enhance the flavor.


Pistachio Milkshake Ingredients

Milkshakes do not have fixed and specific ingredients. You can adjust the ingredients and flavorings to your liking.

  • Whole milk: When preparing a milkshake, remember that using full-fat milk is highly recommended. The fatter the milk, the more creamy the milkshakes will be. So for the creamiest milkshake texture, aim for whole milk. If you are vegan, you can use non-dairy milk.
  • Vanilla ice cream: Pistachios have a naturally nutty and slightly sweet flavor, which pairs well with vanilla ice cream. If you like chocolaty desserts, chocolate ice cream is a great substitute for vanilla ice cream.
  • Pistachios: Best Unshelled pistachios should have a yellow to dark green color. They have a rich and earthy taste that you can’t get enough of! Pistachio is used in many Middle Eastern desserts like Baklava, Mafroukeh, and Kunafa. Make sure you do not use roasted pistachios. Roasted pistachios are darker in color.
  • Ground pistachios for topping: Milkshakes are all about the presentation. Whipped cream, crushed pistachios, caramel syrup, or chocolate sauce. All of these are good options for pistachio milkshakes.
  • Honey: You really don’t have to add any sweetener as ice cream is sweet. But if you have a sweet tooth you can add any sweetener of your choice here. Sugar, honey, or maple syrup will work.

Expert Tips

  • You can customize the recipe by adding a pinch of cinnamon or cocoa powder. I usually garnish the pistachio milkshake with whipped cream and ground pistachios, which I think is enough.
  • For a creamy pistachio milkshake, make sure you use full-fat ice cream, whole milk, or half-and-half.
  • Serve milkshakes immediately.
  • Chocolate ice cream can also be used instead of vanilla ice cream in this milkshake.
  •  If you think the milkshake is too runny, you can add more ice cream. Pour the milkshake into a tall glass cup and top it with whipped cream.

Can I Make a Milkshake Ahead of Time?

I don’t recommend making it ahead of time. This milkshake is best served as soon as it is blended.

How Do You Make a Thicker Milkshake?

Reduce the amount of milk or liquid you add to the blender. This will result in a thicker consistency. Increase the amount of ice cream in your milkshake. This will make a creamier and thicker milkshake.
