I love nuts and I can not choose which one is my favorite. There is a myriad of nuts and they are plenty of nutriments. They are rich in fats that are excellent for our body health and function. They have a small quantity of carbohydrates. Although ones more than others, nuts also contain protein. You can make butter from any nut or you can even mix them! When combined with fruits, nuts act as a boost in our system. That is why they are great for a pre, during or post workout.

Certainly, pistachios are the nuts with the most unique and strong flavor. Did you know that pistachios have more potassium than a banana?

For these reasons, I decided to make a Pistachio Banana Ice Cream. I topped it with berries. You can add pistachios, dark chocolate, seeds or other fruits.

Ingredients                                                                                                                                           yield: 1 person

1 frozen banana (4 oz)      2tbsp grind pistachios     2 ice cubes      1/2cup greek yogurt      berries

Procedure:                                                                                                                                            In the Nutribullet or blender put all the ingredients except the greek yogurt and the berries. You may add water cautiously in order for it to blend. Once the consistencty is achieved, serve the pistachio ice cream in a deep dish with greek yogurt and then add the toppings.
