This is an authentic adaptation of a classic Indian recipe that is enjoyed throughout India.. Unbelievably exotic and delicious. Contrary to popular belief,.saffron is not expensive if you buy it on the internet. An ounce lasts for months even if you use it everyday.and has many uses both in sweet and savory dishes..

Recipe Directions

Put everything except the banana into the blender and blend until the color of the saffron is released and the shake is smooth. Now add the frozen banana and blend until it is incorporated. Blending first without the frozen banana helps the saffron dissolve better releasing more of it’s wonderful color and flavor. The darker the orange color, the more flavor it has. You can vary the amount of saffron and if you don’t have the pistachios or vanilla, it will still work, but don’t leave out the cardamon.

Indian food and Raw, the most ethereal combination! Say, is the texture more like a smoothie or more like mylk? :)

I was just going to say that Trader Joe's has very good prices for saffron – I've noticed but never bought it because I didn't know what to do with it!

Penzeys.com sells saffron. Trader Joe's too if you have one in your area. I can't wait to try this recipe. Spice is nice! It must be fragrance heaven...

I love Indian and Thai cuisine and I really miss them both since going 90%+ raw. I am going to try this and your other Indian inspired recipes. Thanks so much and keep them coming.

No Lorraine, it's my mother :-) Try the saffron masala milk. If you don't have almond milk, you can make quick milk with cashews and water.

Does an ounce really last that long? WELL, I will have to get some afterall. Thinking of making some sort of raw kheer and putting up a recipe for kahva, among other things. I love Indian. Thank you for the recipe.

I would say it most resembles a shake since the bananas make it thicker than milk.
