I am currently sitting out on the porch surrounded by palm trees and sipping one of these delightful drinks. It’s the perfect ending to a busy week at work. I’m also trying to make the most of the beautiful 30 degree weather we have been blessed with here and soaking up as much vitamin D as I can get.
This is my tropical version of the Lassi drink which originated from India. Lassi mean yoghurt drink and for this recipe I have used natural greek yoghurt. However, if you have an intolerance to dairy coconut yoghurt would work wonderfully.
Mango and mint Lassi
1 C frozen mango (we picked and froze our own during mango season)
1 C greek yoghurt (or plant yoghurt)
1 C water
1/4 C mint leaves
2 T shredded coconut
1 t fresh grated tumeric
Place all ingredients in a blender and blend until smooth. The drink should be lovely and thick and creamy.
Pour into glasses and garnish with mint.
