Mango Lassi

Mango Lassi (in the Vitamix)

Mango Lassi

My daughter is a mango fiend. She begs me to buy them every time we go to the grocery store. 1

Mango Lassi is her favorite drink – she starts lobbying for it every Sunday morning, when it’s time to make our breakfast smoothie. Even better, she wants to make it herself; smoothies are a great way to get kids into cooking. If my kids are any indication, if a recipe lets them blitz everything in the blender, they’re all for it.

I was dubious about paying for a Vitamix. Now I can’t imagine Sunday breakfast without it. I can focus on scrambled eggs without worrying about “Dad, the blender is stuck” interruptions.

Equipment

Ingredients

  • 16 ounces frozen mango
  • 1 (5 ounce) container plain greek yogurt
  • 1 (15 oz) can coconut milk
  • 1/4 cup honey

Directions

1. Blend it all

Put everything in blender, start on low, and slowly increase the speed to the highest setting. (On my Vitamix, I slowly twist the knob from Variable 1 to Variable 10.) Blend on high until everything is smooth and frothy, about 2 minutes. Serve.

Notes

  • Want to use fresh mango? Peel and seed 4 mangoes, then dice. Add 2 cups of ice to the smoothie, and cut the coconut milk back to 8 ounces (1 cup).
  • Don’t have a Vitamix? Of course you can use a regular blender. You may need to stop the blender and break up the frozen fruit if it all jams into a solid mass, but once a good vortex gets going in the blender, you’ll be fine. Give it a couple of extra minutes to get frothy if needed.

    That looks seriously good!
    BTW- I just noticed that your recipes don’t have any Pinterest connectivity buttons. Would that be difficult to add? I have a “Recipe Bin” on there that I file all this stuff away in.

    • Working on it – I was trying to get a fancy set of sharing icons to work with the new redesign, but I’m giving up. Try it now…

    That is one serious looking drink. I put mangoes in my smoothies, but I’d never thought to use coconut milk. Must be filling.

    I’ve had my Vitamix for about 10 years. Great tool. Reliable and able to handle anything. Just throw it in.
