RECIPE: Cardamon and Coffee Smoothie

My friend, neighbor and fellow new-mom loves cardamom.  She also loves coffee.  We both could used more Zzzz’z these days, but until then, we’ll caffeinate.  She’s been adding spices to her homemade baby food, and passed along some cardamom to help spice up my life.  So, I dedicate this cozy cup-a-joe to her.  Sam, save 5 bucks on your lattes for the Ivy League education! And consider this tasty treat instead. Can be served cold or hot, depending on your temperment.

In a blender combine:

1 cup Ice (skip if you’re going hot)

1/2 cup H2O (boiling hot water if you’re going hot bevy)

1/2 cup Almond milk

1/2-1 cup Coffee (room temp if you’re going cold bevy)

1 Tbsp Honey

1 tsp Cinnamon

1 tsp Vanilla

1 tsp Cardamom

Cardamon Coffee Smoothie

    LOVE cardamom. I’ll do something like this but I add a bit of palm shortening, melt it, and then use an immersion blender to froth it up.

      Immersion Blender!? Do tell!

        Did I use the wrong term? This is similar to what I use.

        I make a pumpkin latte with similar recipe to what you typed up but add some pumpkin and some fat (I have to use palm shortening due to stupid food intolerances). I make it in a big cup or bowl, immerse it, and then dump it in a pretty cup.

        Duh, sorry, I’ve not heard/used that term.Ha! I thought it was a special blender that would do the opposite of a centrifuge or something! Does it do a good job with both ice AND shortening? Date: Tue, 27 Oct 2015 19:31:07 +0000 To: maddy9000@hotmail.com

        Oh, I’ll bet that would be a grisly mess. Ha! On the other hand, I’ll bet in the blender, as long as the palm shortening was added and blended well with the hot stuff before the ice was added last, it’d still not separate. I don’t know, though. I like it hot… 🙂
