Is there anything more tropical feeling than mango?

I think not.

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

Simple Mango Lassi

I’ve already told you how my father grew up in India 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 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.

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

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!
