Step 1

Make the pistachio milk. Pour pistachios into a medium bowl and fill with water until the pistachios are fully submerged. Soak the pistachios overnight.

Step 2

Drain and rinse the pistachios. Place the pistachios into a blender with filtered water, matcha and almond extract.

Step 3

Liquify the mixture, adding honey and adjusting the sweetness to taste.

Step 4

Make the pistachio syrup. In a small saucepan, combine filtered water, chopped pistachios and sugar. Bring the heat up to medium-low and whisk until the sugar dissolves.

Step 5

Simmer the mixture for 2 minutes or until it just begins to reduce. Strain to remove the pistachios and stir in the almond or vanilla extract. Set aside to cool.

Step 6

Assemble the pistachio latte. Brew two shots of espresso.

Step 7

Add the pistachio syrup to taste.

Step 8

Top the latte with six ounces of steamed pistachio milk. 

Step 9

Garnish the latte with chopped pistachios and enjoy!


Notes:

Serving option: You can steam another non-dairy milk and layer it for a white froth on top.

This recipe is so much more delicious than the Starbucks version! Sometimes I use honey in place of sugar for the syrup for a lovely floral note.
