Mango Lassi

My mother received a huge mango the other day from a friend. Half of it went into some mango salsa; the other half into this rich mango lassi, essentially a smoothie made with mango and yogurt. I always order one when out to eat at an Indian restaurant. They’re really quite easy to make.

    Aha – I have some mango in the fridge and some yoghurt too. but no milk but thats ok, I can use water. – how many does this recipe serve? I think I might need to reduce it for one.

    Can someone tell me, is there a ‘season’ for mangoes? i’ve generally gotten them in Trader Joe’s and they’ve been good, but i’m wondering…

    I’ve been on a smoothie kick for a while. I usually use frozen tropical fruit from the grocery store, but I always make sure I have some extra frozen mango around. It’s a nice balance. Try adding about a teaspoon of artificial vanilla, or use vanilla soy milk instead of regular milk to help your heart.

    Okay, this is definitely going on the list of things to try this weekend! I’m adding mango to my shopping list right now!
