Oh my goodness. This Creamy Cashew Cardamom Smoothie is one of the best smoothies I’ve made to date. It’s sweet, smooth, and absolutely decadent. If you like cashews and cardamom – you’re going to love this.
This recipe calls for just four ingredients: cashews, almond milk (try my homemade almond milk recipe), a frozen banana and freshly ground cardamom seeds. You can use cardamom powder too – but freshly ground spices are always more flavorful.
If you want something dessert-like but without the guilt, then this is the drink to make. The cashews and almond milk add a creaminess to the drink and when you combine that with cardamom – it’s over the top deliciousness. The frozen banana makes this creamy drink nice and cold – it’s kinda like drinking melted ice-cream. In fact, I’d bet this would make excellent frozen pops.
I love using cardamom in smoothies and in desserts. It’s a spice that goes really well with anything sweet. Here are some of my other recipes starring cardamom:
Spinach Cardamom Smoothie
Mango Chai Smoothie
Carrot Cardamom Fudge or Pudding
Indian Carrot Cake
Thandai (the perfect hot weather drink)
Chai spiced Chocolates
Khajoor ki Mithai (date and nut cookie)
Enjoy this drink and let me know how much you love it!
