Strawberry Cardamom Shake recipe
serves 2

Cardamom is one of my favorite spices. It’s floral and delicate but also easy to overdo, so if it’s a new ingredient to you, be cautious when you start adding it to recipes. I think it plays nicely with strawberry for my modern, Spring-y take on a strawberry milkshake. Rich coconut milk and a touch of maple syrup make this shake thick and sweet, steering it away from smoothie territory and more into a dessert-y treat.

1 cup sliced and frozen banana (1 medium banana)
2 cups frozen strawberries
1 15-ounce can full-fat coconut milk
2 tablespoons maple syrup
1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
1/2 teaspoon ground cardamom

  1. Blend all ingredients in the blender until smooth.
