Is there anything more tropical feeling than mango?

Maybe mango and pineapple combined in a smoothie but you get the point.

That’s why on a rainy/thunderstorm-y day this mango lassi recipe was the perfect afternoon pick me up.

Simple Mango Lassi

I’ve already told you how my father grew up in India in this black bean mango salsa recipe and therefore inherent in his DNA is how to properly cut a mango.

He also makes a mean lassi. I can remember a rainy day in the house we lived in until I was 9, watching Indiana Jones on TV and dad making a mango lassi for the first time at home.

Before that, they had always been a restaurant treat only to be enjoyed a few times a year. I’m pretty sure my parents just hyped them up as “special” so we wouldn’t ask for them all the time because really, there’s nothing special to them ingredient wise.

Taste wise, however, d.e.l.i.c.i.o.u.s.

Easy Mango Lassi

Paired with a pineapple carrot cake muffin you can call it lunch.

I did.

Healthy Mango Lassi

And then proceeded to realize that probably wasn’t the best idea before a long run later in the afternoon.

Oh well, some things are worth the stomach ache.

This is one of them.

  1. Bring the cardamom I’ll bring the rose water, and we’ll make them at the beach!!,…..
    after a bike ride!

  2. This looks so refreshing! I love smoothies, but I agree- they can be so filling that they’re not necessarily the best thing to drink before a run :) This totally looks worth it though!
