Tea Infused Pistachio Ice Cubes


When I saw that "Tea and Pistachio" are this month's magic mingle ingredients, I thought Kalyani has outdone herself again with her theme choice. The only thought kept coming was baking something with pistachio, infusing tea. However the idea soon fizzled since neither my kids nor I consume tea / coffee and we are the ones who had to finish the baked stuff. Honestly, I even thought of letting it go this month as no interesting ideas were coming to my mind.
My husband likes to drink a non alcoholic, cold beverage at nights even during winter and at the last moment, I thought of concentrating on that area. The result is these colorful, flavored ice cubes. I had prepared plain tea ice cubes as well for iced tea and I am planning to use the pistachio ones for a nut based milkshake. My husband is away on work and so will update later after the trials. :)

Ingredients: (Yield 12 ice cubes)
3-4 tea bags
1.5 cup water
1/4 cup pistachio powder

Method:
* Bring water to a rolling boil and add the tea bags. Turn off the stove. Allow to infuse until the recommended time and remove the tea bags.
* Allow the tea to come to room temperature and add the pistachio powder. Pour it into ice tray and freeze them until solid.
