When is a smoothie more than a smoothie? When it's a lassi, of course!
I always order a mango lassi at Indian restaurants. But they're dead simple to make at home. I've given a little spin to the recipe, to capitalize on the beautiful jar of Vermont Maple Syrup I made off with from the farmers market.
While not traditional, neither am I, so this lassi and I have that in common. The other thing we have in common is that you're sure to enjoy our company. You do enjoy our company, don't you?!
Mango Maple Lassi
1 cup plain yogurt
1/2 cup milk (any kind you like)
1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
1/2 teaspoon cardamom
1 mango, peeled and chopped
1 tablespoon maple syrup, or more to taste
Chuck it all into a blender and, well, blend. Drink. Smile.
