Pistachio Party for 1: Tangerines, Melted Chocolate, Pistachio Nuts & Green Tea“By posting this pistachio pairing with in-shell pistachio nuts, tangerines, melted chocolate, and green tea, I am entering a contest sponsored by the Pistachio Health Institute and am eligible to win prizes associated with the contest.  I received free pistachio samples from the Pistachio Health Institute. I was not compensated for my time.”

green teaIt’s the perfect “healthy meets indulgent” pistachio pairing party for one and you TOTALLY deserve it.

Pistachio Party for One ~ Pistachio Nuts, Melted Dark Chocolate, Tangerines, and Green TeaAt 200 calories, this super simple to make pistachio pairing is just as healthy as it is decadent, and is the perfect party treat! 

And while your reveling in your solo party, here are some cool in-shell pistachio tidbits to nibble on…

  • A 1 ounce serving of pistachio nuts equals ~ 49 nuts which is more nuts per serving than any other snack nut, and for just 100 calories, you get to nosh on 30 pistachio nuts!
  • Empty pistachio nut shells can serve as a visual cue as to how many nuts you’ve eaten, which in turn may lead you to snack less then if you had eaten nuts without the shell. Pretty cool, huh?
  • Pistachio nuts are deliciously nutritious of course, with one serving providing 3 grams of fiber and 6 grams of fiber, along with a host of phytonutrients and vitamins and minerals such as copper, manganese, thiamin, and vitamin B6.
  • In-shell pistachio nuts have that perfect snacking combination {IMO} of a little bit salty, with just a hint of sweet. Yum!!!
  • You can learn more about the health benefits of pistachio nuts at The Pistachio Health Institute.

So, without further adieu, let’s get this party started!

  2. I love this post. I had no idea that pistachios were such a terrific low calorie snack. The combination of orange, dark chocolate and salty pistachios sounds like the perfect snack to me. Good luck with the contest!

  3. I opened this post and I wanted to jump inside…yes for the flavors…but especially for the colors and the gorgeous warm light. The light here has been cold and gray for way too long. Thanks for making me feel a bit warmer. And also for making me feel special to be invited to this cozy party! (:
