So sorry I have been gone for so long, but I wanted to take some time to really understand what I can manage in terms of consistency with my posts with my schedule. I am still working on it but I will hopefully come up with a good balance in the near future. I have been working on a few post ideas, and today I will be sharing with you how to make a mango lassi/smoothie!
Lassis are a type of smoothie, but it is yogurt based. This recipe is not yogurt based, but tastes very similar to a lassi. My dad makes this recipe and showed me how to make it recently, so I thought I would share it with you! This recipe yields 2-3 servings.
-3 Mangos (I suggest going to your local Indian store, the mangoes there are usually better that at a traditional super market)
First, you are going to cut your mangos. Using a knife, slice away the sides of the mango, as there is a seed on the inside. Take the two sides and scrape them into a blender with a spoon.
Trim down the size of the seed portion, but don’t throw away the seed! You can suck on it to get all of the mango and it makes a great (but slightly messy) snack.
Once you finish cutting all of the mangos, you may choose to add sugar. This is optional, so if you have a sweet tooth or your mangos are a bit tart, add 2 table spoons.
Now pour in about 3/4 cups of milk. Be careful not to add too much, you want it to be a bit lumpy.
Blend it at a low speed, and use the pulse setting if your blending has it. Like I said, you want it lumpy, not super smooth.
That’s it! Its a great desert or snack at the end of the day. Let me know in the comments if you want more smoothie recipes!
