mango lassi

06.06.11

I think I’ve shared my slight obsession with Indian food with you all, but instead of chicken curry or dal, today I’ve got a recipe for mango lassi, the popular Indian smoothie.

The typical mango lassi recipes often contain added sugar, along with the store versions I’ve seen, which just doesn’t sit well with me. It’s not that I am anti-sugar, but I’d rather have sugar in the form of cookies, ice cream, etc. – NOT in a smoothie. Fruit is enough sweetness in smoothies for me!

This drink is perfect for breakfast or a snack in the warmer months and very filling due to the protein in the greek yogurt (20 grams!). I used 2% greek yogurt because I think it is so much more creamy than 0% and I love a little fat at all my meals. :)

burrata cheese

in my cupboard: burrata cheese

Burrata cheese is quickly rising to the top of my “Favorite Cheese List” – and I mean quickly. This was only my third time having it, which may seem a bit premature but it is deeeelish! My first experience was at Mozza Mia and then most recently at my cousins house in LA. I’m obsessed.

tijuana dogs

Every spring I get these bizarre cravings for hot dogs. I’m not sure if it is the constant grilling fumes, wafting into our apartment or the constant Brewers that grace our computers during the summer. (I swear the Brewers play 7 games a week.) Baseball = hot dogs, right? I say bizarre because hot dogs just really
