Homemade Nuts Powder | Almond Pistachio Powder | Healthy Drink Mix

Homemade Nuts Powder Recipe
Almonds Pistachio Nuts Powder serves as a substitute for the regular health drink mix. It contains just 6 ingredients and the preparation will not take much time. This has control over the sugar you add. So now you can say goodbye to store bought health mix which has high sugars. I have used brown sugar here. You can use anything like jaggery or palm sugar. You can use this mix for milk, kheer, to make instant energy balls etc.
