I’ve been liking these Pistachio Chewy Bites so much lately, I not only eat them as a snack, but I also chop them up and sprinkle them on everything! I love how they are not too sweet, but are still totally satisfying if you’re craving something sweet. They are extremely nutritious and made with more than 50 percent pistachios, which is great because most people are quite stingy when it comes to pistachios! Haha! Pistachio Chewy Bites also provide a great balance between carbs, protein, and fat, for a snack loaded with fiber, vitamins and minerals. In this recipe, I served them as part of breakfast, served over matcha nice cream. Here’s how I did!
- 4 frozen bananas*
- 2 teaspoons matcha powder
- 1/3-1/2 cup plant milk or coconut water
- 4 Pistachio Chewy Bites, chopped
- Seasonal fruits, chopped (optional)
Place the bananas in a blender or food processor. Process until the bananas start to break down. Add the matcha powder and the milk, and blend until completely smooth. Transfer to serving bowls, garnish with fresh fruits (mandarins were in season at the time of the picture) and chopped Pistachio Chewy Bites, and enjoy!
*To freeze bananas to make nicecream, start with really ripe bananas. Break them up in chunks and place the chunks in a freezer-grade ziptop bag. I always have 3-4 large ziptop bags in my freezer loaded with bananas, ready for nicecream.
