A short while ago, I attended a strange yoga class.
Limbs were flying. Breath was quick and heated. The music was spunky. I could certainly see why other people were enjoying themselves, but it wasn’t the gentle, soothing flow I needed and it made me grumpy.
To top it all off, when the class was over, the skies opened up and I didn’t have an umbrella. I ducked into a local restaurant to grab a smoothie and wait out the rain.
I decided on a vegan mango lassi and let me tell you, that thing was freaking sunshine in a glass. Given its simplicity, I knew I could recreate it at home.
This lassi is absolutely delightful – smooth, creamy, sweet, with a hint of tartness. Guaranteed to make you happy.
What’s the weirdest yoga class you’ve ever attended?
Love desserts? Me too! That’s why I wrote an e-book about how to make them healthy. Take a peek here.
- ¼ cup cashews
- ½ cup water
- 1 heaping cup frozen mango
- 3 small dates, pitted
- Put the cashews and water into a blender and whirl until smooth. Add the mango and dates, then blend again until everything is smooth.
- You may need to add an additional tablespoon or two of water, depending on how thick you want your lassi to be.
