Have you tried the pistachio latte at Starbucks? This is the homemade version. If you like pistachios – I encourage you to mix up your coffee routine with this Starbucks café-inspired pistachio latte.

You can make a simple version by just making pistachio milk in the NutraMilk in minutes and proceed to making a regular latte with your choice of sweetener or check out the recipe below to make a pistachio syrup. Enjoy!


For Latte

  • 1 oz. espresso shot
  • 2 tbsp. pistachio syrup (recipe below)
  • 8 oz. plant-based milk of choice made with the NutraMilk (pistachio milk to get a rich pistachio flavor along with the syrup)
  • 1 tsp. crushed shortbread cookies

For pistachio syrup

  • 1 cup sugar
  • 1 cup water
  • ½ cup roasted, unsalted pistachios 
  • ½ tsp. almond extract
  • Optional: Pinch of salt (up to ¼ tsp)

For pistachio milk

  • 1 cup pistachio nuts (130g)
  • 1/4 teaspoon pink Himalayan salt (optional)

For pistachio syrup
