Peach-Mango Lassi--A Healthy "Simple Saturday Sipper"

I forgot to plan a "Simple Saturday Sipper" for this week, but with a very muggy afternoon it felt like the perfect time to make a cooling lassi, and I almost always have the ingredients on hand to make one. This Peach-Mango Lassi is full of fruit and non-fat Greek Yogurt with a touch of cardamon and rose water. It's the perfect delicious and healthy snack with plenty of calcium, fiber and vitamins A & C. 

Peach-Mango Lassi
by Deb, Kahakai Kitchen
(Makes about 3 cups)

1 1/2 cup non-fat Greek yogurt 
1/2 cup nonfat milk (I often use almond milk)
1/2 cup frozen peach slices
1/2 cup frozen mango chunks
1 Tbsp honey
1 Tbsp rose water (optional)
1 pinch ground cardamon

Place all ingredients in blender and blend about 1-2 minutes until well blended and frothy. Pour into a glass and serve.

Notes/Results: Cool, refreshing and soothing, perfect for breakfast or as a pick-me-up on a warm afternoon. The rose water and cardamon give it an exotic taste that complements the peach and mango. Easy and delicious! (& my Mom liked it too--she is finally breaking her diet soda habit. Yay Mom!

Happy Saturday!

The lassies are just stunning in the beautiful stemware.
Such a great combination of flavours, I should break out my rosewater and cardamom - I don't use them nearly enough.

Oh yum! I made a dairy-free mango lassi last week, but love the addition of peaches.

love the peach and mango combo. My daughter would love this. I'll have to show her (she's a huge almond milk fan).
