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.
Vegan Mango Lassi
gluten-free, dairy-free, vegan, vegetarian, soy-free, five ingredients or less
1/4 cup cashews
1/2 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.
