Once again, I began my morning with a smoothie. Today, I added a new fruit to the mix. MANGO! I first used mango in a smoothie last summer after I went to a festival while living in Washington DC where they served a Mango Lassi. I had never heard of a Mango Lassi before that event, but the whole day I think I saw just about every single person with a peach colored smoothie like drink, so I just had to try one!
I didn’t have the recipe, but by looking at the ingredients on the menu (Mango, Spices, and Yogurt) I made up my own! I must say, it tastes pretty darn close to the real thing.
Mango Lassi Smoothie:
1/2 cup mango (I use frozen)
1/2 frozen banana
1/2 cup almond milk
pinch of nutmeg and cinnamon
1 sweetener packet
ice and water for volume (about 3 ice cubes and 1/4 water)
Put in blender and blend!
So, after The Bachelorette last night I just want JP to win the whole thing. I just think that they are so cute together, they look like a couple, and they are good heights for each other. Also, their personalities just seem natural together…I think with Ben she seems it seems a little fake…but that’s just me!
