What are Pinners eating this year? We asked our Pinsights team to do a little digging and tell us what flavors are heating up on Pinterest. Here are the top 10 trends to try in the kitchen.
Saffron (+20%) turns regular rice into the crown jewel and kicks up a Moroccan couscous. Paired with honey (+75%), it mixes into an exotic iced tea.
Turmeric (+99%) in a chai latte trumps the same old pumpkin spice. And paired with apple cider vinegar (+140%), it’s a colorful thirst quencher.
Coconut (+20%) gives crunch to crispy chicken and a Maui-style touch to muffins. And coconut bacon (+40%) is a match made in paradise.
Pineapple (+35%) in poke bowls? Yes. Ideally washed down with a pineapple dark and stormy or a tropical iced tea.
Cashew milk (+ 40%) is the new almond milk, but creamier and less nutty
Chickpea flour (+ 30%) means chocolate chip cookies can go gluten-free
Basil (+18%) always belongs in a summer caprese salad, but it’s also the the new star ingredient in hummus, ice cream and even candied basil. Paired with chickpeas (+230%), you get a summery chickpea pesto side salad.
Cilantro (+20%) makes a statement in margaritas and tacos, and also dresses up a chickpea salad
Coffee liqueur (+ 110%) adds a spike to desserts like tiramisu shots. Paired with cinnamon (+75%), it transforms into a creamy cocktail.
Tapioca (+80%) is venturing beyond boba and making a cameo in banana crepes
