Salted Pistachio Lassi

The other night my sister-in-law, Mari and I took our first hot yoga class. The experience was traumatizing yet completely invigorating when all was said and done. I am actually going back for another session tonight. Anyway, the point of my story is that when I got home I didn't really want to eat anything too hearty. I decided to do a take on this salty/sweet lassi. This high protein, low fat smoothie definitely hit the spot. Here's my version...
1 cup Greek yogurt
1/4 cup almond milk
1/2 teaspoon freshly grated ginger
2 tsp agave nectar
1/4 cup roasted and salted pistachios
Place the pistachios in a food processor and pulse until the are fairly fine. Remove about two teaspoons of the pistachios and set aside.
Add the remaining ingredients to the food processor and blend until well-combined.
Serve over ice, if desired and top with the reserved pistachios.
Makes two servings
