  • Agave or honey optional to taste


  • Matcha powder sifted for garnish
  • Roasted Unsalted Wonderful Pistachios shelled and minced

  • Add the pistachios and oil to a high powdered mini food processor or blender and process until very smooth. Transfer to a bowl.
  • Combine the cottage cheese with the bananas, matcha, agave or honey to taste if using, and 2 tbsp of the pistachio butter. Process until smooth like frozen yogurt.
