Spicy-Sweet Cardamom Vanilla Chiller

Subtract the sugar and triple the spice—that’s what a healthy smoothie is made of. This chilly concoction combines a dash of exotic cardamom, a sprinkle of sweet cinnamon and a pinch of fiery cayenne for the perfect spicy-sweet flavor mixed into a rich-and-creamy, vanilla-coconut base. Froth it up with extra ice for muggy summer days, but hold onto this recipe for sweater weather. The same ingredients can be simmered on your stovetop for a rich, cocoa-like warm drink.
