Mango Lassi

There are two beverages I can’t get enough of when I eat out at an Indian or a Thai restaurant. At an Indian restaurant, I crave the mango lassi, and at a Thai restaurant, I enjoy a bottomless cup of Thai iced tea. Both are often so full of sugar, they aren’t doing your body any favors (although your mind may disagree!). This recipe deconstructs the mango lassi and puts a vegan and sugar-free twist on an Indian favorite. And, surprise surprise!, this version is so delicious, you wonder why the original has to complicate matters. Sit still for a vegan, sugar-free Thai iced tea recipe next week.

In the meantime, slurp on this:

    Oh man I love mango lassis. Mango anything really. My brother went to an Indian wedding a couple of weeks ago and he said there were waiters walking around with a bottomless supply of lassis. Yum.

    Ha–it is absolutely raining where I am. But I’m sure one of these would make the day much better! Now if only I didn’t have to venture out into the rain to get the mangos… 🙂
