Vanilla Ricotta Banana Toast with Pistachios.
Now this is MY kind of breakfast.
Texture! Flavor! Health!
Even some green from the pistachios. It totally cancels out the massive wedge of cake I ate this weekend.
I’m very curious… would you consider this breakfast? Or lunch? Or maybe even a snack?
When I loosely plan my meals for the week, with a strong emphasis on “loosely” because I’m such a brat that if I think I HAVE to eat something, I automatically do not want to eat it, I always add some sort of toast to the day.
I bet you’re shocked to know that many times, that’s avocado toast. It’s often avocado toast with eggs, or avocado toast with goat cheese, or avocado toast with anything. But it’s also other kinds of toast, like an open faced sandwich, or nut butter with fruit, or hummus and something. And the thing is that I almost ALWAYS want my toasts for lunch. I find them to be very satisfying at that time.
If I end up having some sort of toast for breakfast… I almost always want to have it again for lunch. Unless I have some killer leftovers, toast for lunch it is.
Buuut. Sometimes I also really like toast as a snack. But in that case, it’s only one piece. Never more. Why can’t I exercise such discipline with chocolate?
This version that I’m crazy over right now? It starts with whipped ricotta. AH. It’s so, so good. So creamy and wonderful. I like to swirl in my favorite vanilla bean paste for a touch of flavor and sweetness since we’re adding fruit.
Next comes the banana. Thinly sliced, lots of them!
On top of that, a big drizzle of local honey. I also like to swirl a touch of the vanilla bean paste into the honey. Oooooh it’s such an incredible flavor.
Finishing the toast off with some crunch is a handful of chopped pistachios and a teeny sprinkle of hemp seeds. Hemp seeds are almost always my go-to for toasts and toppings on smoothies or breakfast bowls. But I wanted more crunch here, so pistachios made the cut.
Other thing that makes the cut: gallons of coffee. I can’t believe it either!
Vanilla Ricotta Banana Toast with Pistachios

this is my kind of toast!! i love the whipped ricotta here – so versatile, too! you could serve it in the summer with fresh berries or figs, & even whip in some goat cheese & top with a smattering of fresh herbs as a cute & easy app. xx
My favorite toast is still peanut butter and honey, even after a fling with avocado toast. I’ll definitely give this a shot. Love the idea of whipped ricotta. So much protein.
LOVE THIS! I usually eat toast at least twice a day; I’ll have to try this version!
This looks amazing! Wish I was having this for lunch right now!
What kind of bread do you usually use? Do you get it at the store or a bakery?
Yummy!!! I love ricotta and pistachios…
Obsessed with the idea of whipped vanilla ricotta! I think it’d be super tasty with a little maple in place of honey to switch things up, too!
This looks amazing and so pretty!
I hope you are having a lovely day. x
I need this in my life right now! I need to find Vanilla bean paste!
I love ricotta! Especially when it’s whipped. I could eat it by the spoonful even though my husband thinks it’s the weirdest thing.
