a fabulous beverage for the New Year!
I whipped up some Mango Lassi, one of our family's favorite Indian foods. If you've never had Mango Lassi, it's basically a luscious smoothie made with yogurt and fresh mangos. It's simple but SO GOOD! You can make this ahead and keep it in the fridge for up to 24 hrs, which is great if you're having a party and want to prep ahead of time!
To spark your creativity,
the National Mango Board is sponsoring
a Mom & Mangos recipe contest.
The winner will receive 2 boxes of fresh mangos, a cutting board, and wooden mango bowl!
Here's how to participate:
-make your own kid-friendly recipe using at least one mango
- leave a comment here with a link to your post.
-Winner will be selected by the National Mango Board based on the following guidelines: 50% recipe concept, 25% photography, 25% best use of fresh mango.
1 cup plain yogurt
1/2 cup milk
1 cup chopped mango (peeled and stone removed)
1-2 tablespoons sugar, to taste
Whipped cream (optional, for garnish)
pinch of ground cardamom (optional)
2 T. ground pistachios (optional)
Put yogurt, milk, mango, and sugar in a blender and mix well, about 90 seconds. Pour into glasses and garnish with whipped cream, ground cardamom and pistachios (my kids don't like cardamom or pistachios so we just left them out & I know whipped cream isn't traditional, but who cares, it's good!). Makes about 2 cups.
Special thanks to the National Mango Board for sponsoring this post with some fresh mangos! Yum!
