Frequently Asked Questions

Can I use a blender instead of a food processor to prepare pistachio cream spread?

No, a blender would not work. The nature and design of a blender do not allow it to blend and mix thick combinations without the addition of a significant amount of liquid. And adding such a quantity of liquid would ruin the texture and, of course, the flavor of the pistachio cream.

Is the pistachio cream spread considered vegetarian-friendly?

Yes, however it is not considered vegan unless you do not use melted butter and substitute regular cow’s milk with a vegan milk option.

Can I use salted pistachios to prepare pistachio cream spread?

It is not recommended to do so. If you do use salted pistachios, you will end up with a salty pistachio spread. We do not want that!

Ingredients
  

  • 2⅔ cups pistachio kernels , raw and unsalted
  • cups whole milk
  • ½ cup powdered milk
  • 1¾ or 2 cups powdered sugar
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla or pistachio extract
  • ¼ teaspoon salt
  • 3 tablespoons neutral oil

Instructions
 

  • You need to add the blanched and peeled pistachios or the slivered pistachios to a food processor. No, a blender would not work.
  • Process until chunky, you'll need to stop and scrape down the sides a few times and repeat the process.
  • Drizzle in the oil or melted butter while the food processor is running and blitz again. It should look a little smoother.
  • Add in the powdered sugar, powdered milk, pinch of salt (1/4 tsp), vanilla extract and process again. If the mixture looks chunky, it's totally fine. If you're opting to use white chocolate instead of powdered milk, melt it and add it now as well.
  • As the food processor is running, drizzle in the milk in increments. It's okay if the pistachio mixture looks curdled or chunky. Stop the motor, scrape down the sides and blitz again. It should now look like a cream.
  • Now you're ready to transfer to an airtight container and store in the fridge for up to 2 weeks, covered tightly.
