All About Pistachio Milk

Pistachios are having a moment for good reason. These tiny powerhouses originated thousands of years ago in the Middle East as a major delicacy and status symbol, but their buttery flavor and outstanding nutrition have never gone out of style.

Today, pistachios are grown around the world and pistachio nut milk is one of the hottest new dairy-free, plant-based milks to come onto the scene. Check out some of the benefits of pistachios as well as a delicious, no-fuss latte recipe to make with Elmhurst’s innovative pistachio milk.


Pistachios are chock full of powerful nutrients, antioxidants, and benefits that don’t get enough shine. From muscle repair to heart health and immune defense, research has shown that pistachios may help support healthy lifestyles and fight off certain diseases.  Here are just a few of the reasons we love pistachios: 

🏋️‍♀️ Fuel Your Active Lifestyle

Pistachios are the perfect post-workout snack. As a complete protein, they have all the essential amino acids our bodies need to build and repair muscles.1,2 Not to mention the potassium we sweat out exercising – this important electrolyte supports healthy muscle function.3 Did you know our Barista Edition Pistachio Milk has 650mg per serving  to help replenish after a workout or pump sesh? That’s more potassium than you’ll find in a banana.

 💖 Keep That Heart Beating Strong

As part of a heart-healthy diet, pistachios may help lower bad LDL cholesterol levels, keep blood vessels in good shape and reduce the risk of heart disease.1 The best part? You don’t have to choose between flavor and nutrition. Elmhurst’s Pistachio Créme Oat Creamer is totally free from cholesterol and saturated fat to add a touch of decadence to coffee or tea without sacrificing heart health.

🦠 Support Your Immune System

From protein that helps maintain healthy immune cells, to B-vitamins necessary for fighting off infections, pistachios are packed with nutrients vital to our body’s first line of defense.1 With 3 grams of immune-boosting protein in every serving, our barista-perfected Pistachio Milk is an easy way to upgrade your at-home coffee routine with some of these benefits.

😋 Kick Cravings to the Curb

Next time you want to fend off a midday craving or late-night snack attack, reach for a handful of pistachios. These little green nuts pack a nutritious 1-2 punch of protein and healthy fat to help keep you feeling full.2 With 3 grams of protein and 4g of unsaturated fat (aka good fats) in just 100 calories, our Pistachio Barista Edition is an easy way to help your lattes and cappuccinos  keep you fueled up longer. 


The rich, buttery texture and natural sweetness of raw pistachios makes them the perfect addition to recipes and baked goods. Shelling, rinsing and chopping them is no easy task though.
