I created this mango lassi recipe in collaboration with Stonyfield and prAna as part of my Stonyfield Clean Plate Club ambassadorship. I received a stipend for my participation and the dress shown in this post at no cost. All opinions remain my own.
With warmer weather moving into Chicago (finally!), all I want is to feel the sunshine on my face and feel refreshed. I’m doing my best to stay on my game in terms of the foods I eat since I’m still recovering from a torn meniscus. So anything refreshing? It has to make me feel good inside and out. Until I head back to the gym, I can’t afford to let down my guard.
This mango lassi has been my savior. It tastes fantastic, and I find it filling enough to enjoy a full serving for breakfast and to split it as dessert in the evenings with my kids. You don’t want to know how many mangos we’ve eaten in the past few weeks. I’m officially an expert when it comes to getting the flesh from a mango.
Celebrating spring with me? This fun dress from prAna. Like the mango lassi, it’s light and refreshing and makes me feel good when I wear it. prAna has the same ethos as Stonyfield, and I love both companies’ focus on sustainability. Of course, you know I made my mango lassi with Stonyfield Whole Milk Greek Yogurt; it’s the perfect tie in!
Before I forget, if you like this prAna Cali dress as much as I do, use my code WHOLES17HAT to receive 15% off your entire prAna purchase (whether you fall in love with this or another item – or six)! I can’t tell you how many compliments I’ve gotten.
But back to this mango lassi with Stonyfield Greek Whole Milk Yogurt. This has the perfect rich and creamy attribute I wanted to incorporate into my recipe. Mango lassi is one of my favorite things with its slight sweetness and the gentle tang of cardamom. The whipped texture satisfies me, and it complements the spicy foods I enjoy perfectly. You know I’m blending a batch the next time I make my chicken curry!
Best of all, this is a recipe so simple my kids can make it themselves (providing I monitor the knife usage or they use mostly defrosted frozen mango).
How to Make Fresh Mango Lassi
For a single serving, I use one large mango that gives me about a cup of fruit. This recipe easily doubles or triples, depending on how many hungry mouths you have to feed. While “experts” tell you to cut your mango into two large halves around the pit and score them, I find it easier to use a vegetable peeler to remove the skin then slice it.
Chop your mango into approximately one inch cubes. Add them to your blender. Add the Stonyfield Whole Milk Greek Yogurt and coconut milk (not from the can) or regular milk, if you prefer. Top with honey and cardamom. Pulse for 20 seconds, then blend until well combined. Serve immediately.
Yes, mango lassi is truly that simple. In fact, it’s so simple that my kids have now experimented with making strawberry lassi and pineapple lassi – both of which are pretty tasty, though not quite the same as my favorite mango lassi!
