Today am with a tasty yummy drink with pistachios and milk. While considering the wonderful benefits of pistachios, this drink is perfect for iftar. A drink which is so simple to make yet delicious and healthy. Especially during Ramadan, we browse for some simple healthy drink to boost us up during iftar time. When ramadan falls in summer, for sure such drinks are very helpful. As pistachios helps in smooth digestion of food, we prefer this drink during ramadan.  The combination of pistachios, ice cream and milk makes this drink more delicious in each sip. Kids and adults will equally love this drink for sure ask for more. In my native place, Kerala this pista drink is often served in special occasions as a welcome drink  for marriages, birthday parties, like so. Though this looks similar in taste and texture to the fresh pistachio drink, it is made with pista essence only instead of fresh soaked pistachios. A few drops of this pista essence is just enough to make that pista drink which is served for a crowd. But i must say, it is not at all a healthy drink. Lets have a ride through health benefits of pistachios. Pistachios helps in weight loss and so it is the first choice for those who are dieting.
