Recipe Substitutes

There are a few ways to make the pistachio martini. You can switch a few ingredients and adjust this recipe to your taste. One thing you can do to make it healthier is to prepare it with no added sugar. Here is what you can use instead:

Organic Stevia Sweetener – if you want a sugar-free mousse, you can substitute the powdered sugar with a ½ cup of stevia sweetener such as Pyure Organic Stevia Sweetener Blend.  

How To Store a Pistachio Martini Dessert?

While it is not recommended to store a whole pistachio martini dessert in the fridge, you can keep all its ingredients separately (pistachio mousse and whipped cream in the fridge and the rest at room temperature), and assemble it before serving. This way the crumbles will stay fresh and crispy, and so as the rest of the decorations. Another option is to assemble only the base of this dessert, and put it in the freezer, and add the topping later, right before serving. To do this, you may want to use a different types of glasses that can be frozen.
