Wash, peel (where necessary), de-seed and slice all the fruits into large chunks.
In a sauce-pan, bring together the fruit slices, sugar, hot water and your cardamom. Cover and cook for around ten minutes till all the fruit gets mushy and cooked.
Switch off the gas and discard the cardamom pod. Set aside to cool.
Blend the mixture together to a smooth paste in a blender. I didn’t feel the need to sieve this mix but you can go ahead and do it if you want.
Now, to this mix sitting inside the blender, add your milk, ice-cream and vanilla essence. Blend again to get a creamy and thick punch. You can increase or decrease the quantity of the milk for the desired consistency.
To serve, smear the insides of your glasses with your favorite jam. Pour the fruit punch till the rim and top it off with a swirly of some yummy whipped cream. Sprinkle some pistachios.
Insert a straw, serve immediately and enjoy!
