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.

(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!)
