Pistachio milkshake – DF and Vegan

Kesar Badam Milkshake


Pistachio milkshake is made with raw pistachio, almond milk and cardamom; mace is used as a flavouring agent.

Mace is one of the natural boons. While nutmeg is actual seed of the tree, mace is dried reddish covering of the seed known for its several culinary and medicinal uses. Mace is a prominent flavouring agent in cuisines of most countries. Mace can be used in several forms, either as the directed lacy covering or in powdered form.

Mace is very handy for digestion and easing stomach aches and gas from stomach and intestine. It is beneficial for preventing indigestion, flatulence, vomiting and diarrhoea.

Flavours can be personalised by adding nutmeg/vanilla as per the preference.
