PISTACHIO ICE LATTE

I love trying out different coffee flavors but with REAL ingredients. I love pistachios and I love coffee so I thought lets see what its like if we combine both. I personally loved it but your preferences might be different. Sharing the recipe below if you’d like to try it. I also made an IG Reel video in case you want to check it you. Linked here.

INGREDIENTS: (serves 1)

  • 60ml Espresso (I use medium – dark roast coffee beans)
  • 120ml organic whole milk (you can also try it with plant-based milk – I haven’t yet)
  • 1 tbsp organic unsalted pistachios
  • Ice (optional)

METHOD:

  • In a glass, add ice (optional) & espresso. Keep it aside. 
  • In a blender jar, add pistachios and milk. Blend it for 20-25 seconds in your vitamix or nutribullet. 
  • Put the pistachio milk in the glass w/ espresso.
  • Serve cold with your fave dessert/snack – I had it with some croissant.

QUICK ZAATAR MANAKEESH

Middle Eastern cuisine has to be my next fave cuisine after Indian. Hummus, good! Bread, good! Olive Oil, Gooooooooood! 🙈 Don’t really remember where I ate manakeesh for the first time but the flavors stuck w/ me. I decided to make an instant version with Stonefire Mini Naan, store bought Palestinian Zaatar mix and CA Olive Ranch Olive Oil. Takes about 10 minutes and a perfect snack for a busy busy workday.

INGREDIENTS – (serves 1-2)

  • 1.5 tbsps Zaatar per naan
  • 2-3 tbsps olive oil per naan
  • 3 mini naan

METHOD –

  • We will make one manakeesh at a time – Heat the griddle on medium heat with oil. Add Zaatar and stir the spice in the oil thoroughly.
  • Now lay the naan on top of spice/oil mix and let the naan go soft and warm. The spice mix will stick to the naan and it’ll toast at the right places.
  • Flip the naan carefully so there is no spice leftover and slightly warm it up on other side. Remove from griddle and repeat same process for other 2 naan.
  • Serve warm with some Tzatziki drizzled w/ olive oil & sumac or your favorite soft cheese – my fave is goat cheese w/ truffle.
