I had been looking at some shakes and drinks that called for Mango and Cardamom spice (some called a Mango Lassi). I had purchased this spice but didn't have the chance to use it yet. Its yummy. The only problem that I had was that these drinks were the consistency of.. well, water. I need this little thing to fill me up somehow for more than 10 minutes. So I added a few things here and there, had it this morning and was so happy with it.

  • 2Note:
    Cardamom is a slightly expensive spice. However it can be used in breads, desserts and other dishes as well, so it is worth the investment. I actually added 1/4 tsp of the spice in my drink because I love it. Start out at 1/8th. If you cannot find Cardamom or do not wish to purchase it, you can use the cinnamon/nutmeg suggested or ginger,
    Freezing mango pieces creates better icee smoothies.
