This is a delicious mango smoothie. Very tangy and sweet just like a ripe mango. You will also find an odd ingredient here, at least for a smoothie: cardamom. why add cardamom? It is a good stimulant and beneficial for those suffering from flatulence and gas (stomach cramps). Cardamom also helps in cleansing the body as it has detoxifying properties. Cardamom enhances appetite and provides relief from acidity in the stomach. And, believe it or not, cardamom is used in treating halitosis.
