I prepared this smoothie yesterday for my kids(and we had it too). Mangoes and almonds both make a great combination which would give you a refreshing taste and energy. With the hot summer in Nairobi this smoothie tasted so good after running around in the sun.Cardamom flavor makes it more delightful with the "Indian kulfi" touch.

Ingredients: (makes 4 glasses)

Ripe mangoes- 2

Almonds- 10

Cold milk- 1 cup

Cold water- 1 cup

Sugar (In case the mangoes are not very sweet)

Cardamom powder- 1 pinch


1. Peel the skin of the mangoes and cut the mangoes into slices.

2. Place the almonds in  a blender  with little milk and prepare a smooth paste.

3. Now add the mango slices with milk, water and cardamom powder and blend in the blender to get the smooth drink.

You can also opt to add some freshly whipped cream to add more richness to the smoothie.
