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. 🙂
- 1-7oz container 2% greek yogurt
- 1/2 cup frozen mango chunks
- splash of milk
- Blend all ingredients until smooth, adding more milk as necessary.
