Celebrate National Pistachio Day 2022 With These Delicious Desserts

On 26 February we are celebrating National Pistachio Day, and we’re nuts about it! The humble pistachio nut is proof that dynamite comes in small packages. It’s packed with nutrition and even has a slight smile – making it all the more appealing.

Pistachios come from a rather strange family that includes mangoes, cashews and even poison ivy. They’re also packed with protein – one serving is the equivalent of an egg. The more you know…

The Benefit Of Pistachios

While we have briefly touched on the protein content of pistachios, there are a few more health benefits worth noting.

  • It’s a heart-healthy food and contains monounsaturated fat
  • They have a rich history to support various health claims – dating back around 9000 years!
  • Low in calories and packed in protein
  • They contain 30 different minerals, vitamins, and phytonutrients in addition to fiber and omega fatty acids.

Old Faithful

If you’re not looking for a heavy dessert, or simply want a quick snack, a handful of roasted pistachios are always a treat. You can even incorporate it into your trail mix for an on the go treat.

Tasty Pistachio Ice Cream


This one is a no brainer – ice cream! The delicate flavor and crunch of the pistachio are a welcomed addition to any ice cream. That’s why we’ve created not one, but two organic ice cream flavors featuring pistachio. Saffron Pistachio is an exotic eastern flavor showcasing the delicate flavor and aroma of Saffron, complemented with the crunch of the pistachio.

Cardamom Pistachio Kulfi has a rich aroma that showcases the vibrancy of cardamon, once again the crunch of the pistachio comes into play for a more well-rounded finish.



For the more adventurous baker, why not try your hand at baking baklava? All you need is filo pastry, some chopped nuts and fruit and honey. You can add some spices for a more fragrant dessert, for example, cinnamon or nutmeg. IF you’re looking for a serious treat, you can even add a scoop of your favorite natural ice cream to your dessert bowl.

Chocolate Brownies


You can take the average chocolate brownie to the next level by adding a handful of crushed pistachios to the mix, and even topping them with a few once they are baked. It’s a great pop of flavor and adds texture to the chocolatey goodness.

Chocolate Bark


This new dessert craze has been taking over social media, and now you can join in on the fun too. All you need to do is melt down a slab or two of chocolate and add pistachios to the mix before it sets. You can add almost anything to this, which makes it a fun way to play with your favorite treats.
