Thick and smooth milkshake with the mild flavor of pistachio and subtle sweetness is Pista Milkshake. It is a rich milkshake but has been prepared without any ice cream. The method of pista milkshake recipe ensures that the maximum flavor of pistachio is extracted.
Pistachio: Soaked pista is required for the pista milkshake recipe. I like to use 1 and ½ tbsp of soaked pista for 1 glass of milkshake. You can use up to 1 tbsp.
Sweetener: I have used granulated sugar for the milkshake. 2 tbsp per glass is what I like to add, you can adjust as per your taste.
Flavoring: Pista has a very mild flavor. If any other flavor is added, there is a risk of losing the pista flavor. Therefore, I have just added little cardamom which complimented the pista flavor. Almonds can also be used. Saffron, at times, dominates the flavors. Therefore, I would recommend avoiding that. I have not used any essence or food coloring.
Thickener: Generally, pista ice cream or regular vanilla ice cream is used to make pista milkshake. However not always do we have ice cream in the freezer. In such situations, I use cornflour. It gives the desired texture to the milkshake.
Milk: I have used the regular dairy milk for this recipe.
