How to make pistachio shake:

  • Add 1/2 cup milk and blend until smooth.
  • Scrape down the sides of the jar with a spatula to free the nuts.
  • Slowly add another 1 cup milk and blend for 1/2 minute.
  • Place the nut milk, remaining milk and saffron in a heavy- bottom pan over high heat.
  • Stirring constantly, bring to full boil.
  • Froth the milk two more times, then remove it from the flame and stir in a sweetener until dissolved.
  • Place the strainer over the blender and pour in the milk.
  • Partially cover and blend, starting at the low speed and increasing it to high, until the milk is frothing.
  • Pour into cups, sprinkle with pistachio silvers, and serve immediately.
