I’m on a tight schedule this week as I head off to DC tomorrow morning for a women’s equality rally, so I perused my collection of recipes looking for something quick and easy to make, and voilà – mango lassi. I’ve written about my love of Indian food, and particularly mango lassi, before and figured I’d give it a try. This recipe results in quite a bit of spice flavor; if that’s not your thing just cut back on the spices or eliminate them entirely.
Spiced Mango Lassi
- 1 1/2 cups diced, peeled, pitted mango (about 1 to 1 1/2 fruits)
- 1 cup plain nonfat yogurt
- 1 cup ice cubes
- 1/4 cup almond milk
- 1 1/2 tbsp honey
- 1/2 tsp vanilla extract
- 1/4 tsp ground cinnamon
- 1/8 tsp ground cardamom
- Combine all ingredients in blender and blend until smooth. For best results serve immediately, but you can also freeze this if you want to save some for later.
