MANGO LASSI // easy fruit & yogurt smoothie
I have a huge sweet tooth, which I try to keep in check with pseudo-sweet treats like fruits and smoothies. One of my go-to smoothies is mango lassi -- actually a yogurt-based drink served in most Indian restaurants.

I love to have this as a treat between painting sessions -- I'm trying really hard not to have drinks around while I paint, since they tend to end up with paint in them!

MANGO LASSI, makes about 2 servings
Recipe adapted from Simply Recipes

INGREDIENTS

  • 1 cup plain or vanilla yogurt 
  • 1/2 cup milk
  • 1 cup chopped mangoes (I used frozen ones, which give the lassi a nice cool texture)
  • 2 tsp sugar
  • 1/4 tsp cardamom -- optional, but really what gives an "Indian" flavor to this (and to other Indian desserts like kheer)

INSTRUCTIONS: Combine all ingredients in a blender and blend until smooth. Adjust sugar and cardamom levels to taste, then serve cold!

Enjoy!
