India’s version of a smoothie is tangy with yogurt and slightly spiced with exotic cardamom (well, not THAT exotic—find it in the supermarket).
Use decarboxylated Kief or Hash to medicate this marijuana smoothie. Find more information on how to make and cook with kief and hash at this link. You can alternately use decarbed hash oil.
Cannabis Tincture: Another Way to Medicate This Recipe!
Don't have kief? No problem. Use a THC or CBD Tincture to add the medicine to this refreshing beverage. It's quick and easy. Use commercial tinctures like those from Joy Organics (my favorite CBD products), or your own "house-made" (doesn't that sound fancy?) DIY tincture.
Mangoes and Marijuana
Did you know that many mango varieties share a terpene with cannabis (the chemical element of the plant that gives it aroma and flavor)? No wonder the two are a natural flavor match. Learn more about the Mango and Marijuana connection at this link, including why some people think eating mangoes can increase the length and intensity of your high.
How to Cut a Mango
Mangoes have a thick skin you will need to remove and they contain a single large flat oblong pit you will need to cut around. Always wash mangoes before peeling and cutting.
Take a look at your mango. Regardless of which variety you use, you will notice the fruit is oblong and one side will have what looks like a small round indentation or “eye” and/or a subtle ridge that run along it. The oblong pit runs just behind this. Put your mango on the cutting board and cut through the fruit about 1/4-inch off center from this point. Repeat, cutting about 1/4-inch from the other side of the center pit. This will leave you with two mango “cheeks.” Score the fruit into strips or cubes, taking care to not cut all the way through the skin. Now take a spoon and simply scoop out the mango slices or cubes. The center portion can also be peeled and you will be able to get a small amount of usable fruit from this piece by carving around the pit.
