Book Update: I took ALL my books back to the library! We move next week! I already found a school library book from last May under our dining table. Oy vey.
Recipe: A lassi is a yogurt based drink mainly found in India, Pakistan and Bangladesh. Feel free to substitute the mango for another fruit and the orange juice for milk or more ice. Fruits could include berries, papaya, pineapple, oranges, etc. Basically, try 1 cup of yogurt, 1 cup of fruit, some ice cubes and some honey if you like. For denser fruits like mango, I had orange juice or water.
Something fast and delicious! Great way to get my kids some vitamin A since they really dislike carrots and I don’t have any canned pumpkin right now. Frozen mango and organic mango is sold at Trader Joe’s for $2.30 per bag, so it is a staple around here especially with a sprinkle of cinnamon on top. Add it to your kid’s lunch box or use it for a breakfast on the go. You get vitamin A and C from the mango, protein from the yogurt, and more vitamins from the orange juice.
- 1 cup frozen or fresh mango, diced
- 1 cup plain yogurt, or vanilla
- 1/4 cup orange juice
- 1 tsp agave nectar or sweetener of your choice, optional
- 1 Tb. ground flaxseed, optional
- 4-6 ice cubes (or more if the mango is not frozen)
- Blend together in a blender. Adding liquids first seems to help my blender blend faster.
