1. Peel the bananas and break them into your blender. Slice a 2cm chunk off the turmeric and peel it. Roughly chop the turmeric and add it to the blender (be warned: turmeric likes to dye everything yellow, so chop it on a plate or glass chopping board and use gloves to protect your hands). Tip in the cashews.
2. Place 2 cardamom pods on your chopping board and use the back of a spoon to break them open. Shake the black seeds into a pestle and mortar and add 4 peppercorns. Grind as finely as you can – or use a small, sturdy bowl and the bottom of a jar or the end of a rolling pin to crush the spices.
3. Scrape the crushed spices into the blender and add ½ tsp each mixed spice and ground ginger. Add a little pinch of salt. Pour in the chocolate mylk and add a few ice cubes. Blitz for 1-2 mins till creamy. Pour into two glasses and dust with a little extra mixed spice to serve.
