Mango Lassi


My 11 year old is   Fasting  this month. Although its not a must for kids to fast , they still  do as a practice, The smaller ones like  my 6 year old  do half fasts like take suhoor ( early morning meal ) and fast till he starts to feel hungry in the afternoon then have a bite and then fast again.  Its a joke in the house that he does two fasts per day. Although he has managed to hold 2 whole fasts.
As they get older they try to stay longer without the meal.  Anyway I decided to make lassi , which is a yogurt drink thats served alot in India and Pakistan. Mango Lassi is made using mangoes and since Mangoes were around when Ramadhan started I sliced a dozen mangoes and froze them and kept them stashed in the freezer to  turn into smoothies and Lassi ( which I have to say is a kind of smoothie itself right?). Its filling, its healthy and delicious!.

Recipe : Mango Lassi 
Serves 4-5

250g mangoes ( peeled and sliced )
1 cup yogurt
2 cups milk ( full cream or skim or low fat etc)
1 cup cold water
Sugar to taste ( I used about 3 tbsp)

Place everything in the blender and blend till smooth. Thin it down with a little more water if you like it thinner, I prefer a nice thick Lassi.  Chill and serve with a fat straw ( if you like that is) .
