Sometimes playing around in the kitchen can be a supremely serendipitous event.

I wanted something cold and creamy but slurpy, reminiscent of iced coffee, but with a few spices thrown in, and this was the result.

Cardamom is totally the kicker in this recipe. You can buy it pre-ground or buy pods and grind your own for an even more exhilarating experience.

Iced Cinnamon Cardamom Banana Shake

1 frozen ripe banana

1 ripe banana

1-1.5 cups water

¼ tsp cinnamon

¼ tsp cardamom ground

½ vanilla bean (or ½ tsp vanilla)

Directions: Make sure your bananas are nice and ripe (ie. spotty). If you use unripe bananas not only will it give you a tummy ache, you will also have to add a sweetener to the recipe.

Into your blender put the chopped frozen banana and unfrozen banana, water, cinnamon, cardamom and vanilla bean. Blend and enjoy! 🙂
