mango saffron smoothie oh yeah!

"You're putting SAFFRON in the kids smoothie...isn't that stuff expensive"? Asked my sister as I told her about my culinary plans for the day. "Uhmm, yep & yep I said", "but it's for the experience ", I answered slyly. It sure was an experience.

I usually add saffron to rice and meat dishes, and to garnish desserts etc, but I never thought using it in a smoothie. That is until I found this recipe.
This is one you have to try!

1 cup chopped frozen mango pieces               
2 cups whole milk                                      
3 tsp sugar or honey                           
 ¼ teaspoon cardamom powder                
pinch saffron  *extra to garnish 
1. Steep (soak) the saffron in milk for about half an hour.
2. Blend the mango cubes in a blender with milk.
3. Add honey and cardamom powder to it.
4. Now add the soaked saffron milk to it and blend well.
5. Refrigerate the whole mix for about an hour, before serving.
6. Garnish with the remaining saffron strands (a few).
7. Serve cold.
*we nixed the sugar altogether and it was still sweet.
