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.

Secret weapon spices

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.


Tropical twists

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.


Sneaky substitutions

Cashew milk (+ 40%) is the new almond milk, but creamier and less nutty

Chickpea flour (+ 30%) means chocolate chip cookies can go gluten-free


Herbs get creative

Basil (+18%) always belongs in a summer caprese salad, but it’s also the the new star ingredient in hummusice 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


A new spin on sweets

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
