Fresh Mango Lassi

Hello again after a long time. Life has gotten hectic lately, and my little baby called M & M has suffered. I left you off at my birthday recap, and in the weeks since then, I’ve been consumed by time-consuming things like job hunting, apartment hunting, and doctor hunting (after turning 26, and no longer having the privilege of being under my parents’ insurance, I’ve had to put on my big-girl pants and find all new medical providers.  By the way, if you know of good dentists, optometrists, and PCPs in the Mountain View/Sunnyvale/San Jose area, I’d love to hear about it!) With all the time being away from home, I have had to eat more on the go, contrary to what I said here. But when I do come home, I try to whip up something fresh and refreshing, especially since it’s starting to get hot here in California (on a side note, the other day, a native Californian mentioned it was a chilly day…it was 75 degrees! The Oregonian in me had a good chuckle at that one).

Since mangoes are in season and are irresistible (or, as my dad likes to say, they’re the king of all fruits), I got an entire crate of ripe mangoes. B and I enjoyed them for dessert numerous times and made one of our favorite summer drinks, the mango lassi. The coolness of the yogurt blended with the freshness of the mangoes makes for a perfect sunny-day treat. And it’s super easy to make, which is always a plus in my (recipe) book.

Fresh Mango Lassi
