MANGO AND CARDAMOM SMOOTHIE

This recipe will inspire you to experiment with all sorts of healthy spices.

“Cardamom, a spice frequently used in Indian dishes, is actually related to ginger and has similar benefits for the digestive system,” says Mira Manek, London-based chef and author of the new cookbook Saffron Soul. “Add to that antioxidant-packed raspberries and mango and this naturally sweet treat is as delicious as it is good for you.”
