The Snackistan Mango Tamarind Smoothie

MilkshakeIt all started with a roast garlic recipe. Of which more elsewhere. Anyway, Mrs. Shopkeeper hadn’t had any lunch today. And she had some leftover ‘vegetable dressing’. So she made a milkshake. Yes sirree. Because that’s the weird kind of chick she is. Turns out the shake was so filling that she is still full, a good two hours later. SO this is a real fatboy of a snack drink. And you can have it hot or cold: a smoothie for all seasons.
Ingredients (for one):

  • 1/2 small honey mango, pureed with a little honey (or three tablespoons canned mango pulp, as per the photo)
  • 150ml oat milk (or almond, or soya, or even cow)
  • 1-2 teaspoons tamarind paste (to taste – it is mighty sour, mind)
  • 1/3 teaspoon ground ginger

Really easy. Blend all the ingredients together. To enjoy warm, er, well, just warm it up in a wee saucepan. Reckon a drop of brandy would be a nice addition, although clearly Mrs.S. didn’t have any in her liquid lunch today as you need all your faculties to drive a shop.
This is so good we are considering adding it to our new Snackistan Cafe menu. Did we tell you that Snackistan is actually a real place now? Swing by and snack some day: it’s open all the hours that the shop’s open.
