I definitely think this could be a contender for weirdest breakfast of the week, but I DARE you to try it and tell me it's awful.
A few weeks ago I was reading FoodBabe's Blog, and she posted a pistachio milk recipe. Intrigued, I set out on the semi-daunting task of finding unsalted, unroasted, shelled pistachios. It took a minute and two grocery stores, but I found them at the fancy farmer's market near the in-laws. Biggest draw back: $20 a lb.
This recipe is easy-peasy, so try it if you have a $20 spot to burn, because it really is worth it. It also only took about 2 minutes to make, though cleaning up the food processor took about 5.
The pistachio milk is really satisfying, nutty, and even a little thick (thanks to my less than fine mesh strainer), and a half jar and a banana was a perfect breakfast. I added a bit of vanilla, and I think for a really awesome fall drink, I'd warm this up and add a sprinkle of cinnamon.
Other possibilities going through my brain:
-Making this into an icecream
-Booze--why does it always come back to booze? I'm thinking a bit of spiced rum could be nice.
-Whip it and put it on a chocolate dipped graham cracker
-Smoothies--Add some oranges and a creamsicle appears!
Drink the pistachio milk. Seriously.
