  1. To make thandai vegan, use coconut, almond, or any other unsweetened non-dairy milk.
  2. You can swap sugar with maple syrup, honey, or coconut sugar.
  3. 1-2 tablespoons of vanilla ice cream or caramel ice cream can be also added to the thandai milkshake.
  4. Green cradamom's skin is also aromatic and tastes great. So I grind green cardamom with the skin, but you can also peel the skin.
  5. Adding poppy seeds give this thandai powder a uniquely rich flavor and creamy texture. It is recommended to use, but if you don't have poppy seeds then you can skip them.
