Mangoes are an amazing fruit. They are high in vitamin A and have good amounts of vitamins B and C as well as Potassium, Calcium and Iron. But all that doesnt matter to me as I am sipping this Lassi. All I know is it tastes amazing and the kids are loving it.

Speaking of kids. Never leave a 3 year old alone with a marker, even if you just have your back turned for a minute because they could develop marker-atitis. This condition is temporary but rather unsightly. It is characterized by strange and unusal drawings occuring anywhere in the body. Not excluding the scalp. Oh yes, we personally have seen it on the scalp. Guess who has a time out from markers. (maybe she has a future in pointilism).


3 cup plain yogurt
1 cup milk
1 cup water
1 cup mango pulp
1/2 cup sugar
1 oz pistachios, ground

Whirl the first five ingredients in a blender. If you want it really cold, go ahead, add a few ice cubes. Sprinkle a little of the pistachios on top of each glass. This makes about 4 servings.

I have never had a mango lassi. Now I have no excuse. I'll have to give this a try.

Looks like such a refreshing drink. I saw a video the other day where a little kid got a hold of a marker & drew all over a white dog!

What lovely time spent here... with accoustic guitar flamenco-ey music and a lassi recipe! Loooove both!

And you remind me that I do have everything to make lassis! Thanks for sharing, Lori!

On the positive side of things, at least she didn't do cross-hatching on your kitchen wall or something. Or did she?
