Mango Lassi (Smoothie and Puree Versions)

Mango Lassi (Smoothie and Puree Versions)

A great Indian beverage/smoothie for toddlers, big kids, and adults. Alternatively, you make the same ingredients into a puree and introduce the same great taste for the younger set (8 months plus due to dairy and spices).

Lassi (Smoothie)

- 1 large very ripe mango, peeled and cubed (or use frozen cubed mango for ease - approx. 1 cup) 
- 3 cups plain yogurt (full fat for the munchkins)
- 1 cup milk (same deal)
- 1/2 cup water
- 1 tsp rose water (optional but I really recommend)
- 1/8 ground cardamon 

Blend until thick and yummy. Taste for sweetness (depends on your mango) and add sugar, agave nectar, or honey to taste. Serve with ice. 

Makes 3-4 servings

Mango Lassi Puree

- 1 cup cubed mango (fresh or thawed frozen)
- 1/2 cup full fat plain yogurt
- tiny sprinkling ground cardamon

Puree and serve. 

Both versions will keep refrigerated up to three days, but are not suitable for freezing.
