Every summer I become obsessed with something. In 2011, I ate an avocado daily. Then I went bananas over bananas last year. This July, I’m all over mango lassi, which is a yogurt drink from India. You can find it at most Indian restaurants in Dallas, but there’s no point buying it when it’s the easiest thing to make. No, seriously. this is a foolproof recipe. You only need three ingredients, and it makes a helluvalot healthier breakfast than any sausage and egg sandwich. There’s a tangy sweetness to it that requires zero extra sugar. Life is wonderful if you drink more mango lassi. It really is.

Ingredients:
(serves ~2 people)

  • 1 mango, cut up into cubes
  • 1 spoonful of plain yogurt (doesn’t matter which kind. Obviously, Greek yogurt will make yours thicker.)
  • 2 cups of milk (less milk will make your lassi thicker)

 
Blend the mango, yogurt, and milk together. Now you’re done. Drink your mango lassi! Share if you like. Don’t share if you’re like me. Add sugar (if you don’t think it’s sweet enough) and ice (if you like it cold).
