The good people at Chobani sent me some of their delicious fare. I’ve been pondering what I should do with a wine fridge full of yogurt… I decided to start with something I’ve never tried before, a Mango Lassi!
This drink can be made savory or sweet, and originates from India. It’s traditionally made by mixing yogurt, spices and water. It can be made with salt, sweetened with honey or even kicked up with some cumin.
I used this recipe from Pinch of Yum as my starting place. I used creamy coconut milk and vanilla extract to make it my own. This is technically a drink… but it’s so creamy and thick, like a milkshake, you can eat it with a spoon too. Whatever suits your fancy.
I love the tropical, nutty flavor the coconut adds. Ok, maybe I really just love coconut. Maybe I really am just craving some beach time… it’s always a good time for the beach, right? Pretty sure this sweet lassi will sweep you right off to somewhere blissfully bohemian.
1 1/2 cup fresh mango
1 cup Chobani Plain Greek Yogurt
1/4 cup coconut milk
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
Serves two. Can be kept in the fridge for a day or two.
