Avoiding dairy for over a year now, it’s always a pain in the arse in the summer when you want to have a cool creamy treat on the hottest of days. Yes there’s the fake ice cream, but what if you want to be a bit healthier? I was totally psyched to find and adapt a recipe for a Mango Lassi that is 100% vegan and oh-my-gawd delicious…
1/4 cup non-dairy yogurt (we tried Silk’s almond milk yogurt which was great)
3/4 cup non-dairy milk (again I’m all about the almond milk, but soy & coconut will do as well)
3/4 tsp organic vanilla extract
1 1/2 cups chopped mango, frozen (but if you’re using a smoothie maker? let it thaw a bit or it’ll get stuck)
1/2 tsp ground cardamom
Many recipes out there recommend agave but I think the mango is plenty sweet enough on its own!
Recommendation – if it’s 100 degrees? Double the recipe !
