No Kidding. This can serve as either a protein packed delicious breakfast in the morning or a delicious dessert in a glass in the evenings.
This world-famous drink is filled with probiotic from the Greek yogurt, sweetened with juicy mangoes and fragrant with cardamom along with the nutty touch from pistachios. What else do you need, right?

And suddenly here in Northern California it’s a shorts and tank top weather. Can you believe it? We are not even one week into February and the Sun is way too bright. Sorry, God Sun…, your brightness is not really welcome. We need to have foggy, chilly days in February with showers here and then…, certainly not an overly bright sun smiling down on us. I’m just not ready to pack off my sweaters, flannel pjs and boots yet.


Anyways, since the weather warmed up and suddenly it was an ice cream and popsicle kinda weekend.., I had this huge Mango Lassi craving. Like a sudden got-to-have-it now kinda craving. I had frozen mangoes (I usually freeze fresh fruits when they are abundantly available), I had Greek honey yogurt and I certainly had pistachios and cardamom handy. I dumped everything in my Vitamix and gave it a good blend. Within seconds and with less than 5 ingredients, my delicious Mango Lassi with Cardamom and Pistachio was ready.

Like, a refreshing and healthy smoothie Mango-Strawberry-Turmeric Smoothie made with mangoes, strawberry and a bit of turmeric. Oozing with healthy nutrients. If you want some thing for those girls night outs or a BBQ at your place, you must try Stirred Mango Margarita. This will definitely kick up a lot of fun conversations.

Or, if you want something savory then try Chili-Lime-Mango Chicken (Healthy). Its DELICIOUS. The mangoes and chili give this chicken dish a very delectable flavor profile. Anddd, lastly, why don’t you surprise mom this Mother’s day with this Mango Mousse (Eggless), How to Make Eggless Mango Mousse ? 🙂

Now coming back to the Mango Lassi with Cardamom and Pistachio, you It tastes great without any addition of nuts as well. You seriously gotta try it to believe me.
