Happy Monday darlings! Fall is finally beginning to settle in around here, but I couldn’t resist publishing one more summertime recipe. This month’s Secret Recipe Club reveal day (today), gave me the perfect excuse because I get to share this delicious and easy Mango Lassi recipe with you!
In case you’re new here or haven’t read a Secret Recipe Club post before, let me explain how it works. The Secret Recipe Club is a group of bloggers that, once a month, feature a recipe from another blogger’s website. It’s a “secret” because you don’t know who is assigned to your blog until that month’s Reveal Day. This month, I was assigned to Jean at The Tasty Cheapskate. Her blog focuses on frugal eating and living tips for families. She even had a frugal eating challenge for her family of 6 where they tried to eat on $6/day! I’m impressed. Looking through the recipes, I seriously considered making Coconut Red Lentil Dal because I love lentils or the Wacky Cake, because of the name. Actually, the Wacky Cake almost won because, as it turns out, it’s a Depression Era sheet cake recipe you mix and bake all in one pan, and I love trying out vintage recipes.
Then breakfast happened one day…
In the summer (and sometimes in the fall, winter, or spring), we have smoothies for breakfast. We decided to have smoothies one day the week that I was picking my SRC recipe and I asked the Godfather to pick a flavor based on ingredients we had on hand. We had frozen mango on hand, and I was secretly hoping he’d pick that. If you know the Godfather, you know this is silly because while he’ll eat most fruits, mango is far from his favorite. So obviously, he didn’t pick mango smoothies. And I’m not making two different smoothies in the morning.
And then I remembered the Mango Lassi recipe. I made mango lassi that weekend, and all was right again in the world, especially since I had super cute bamboo paper straws to make the lassi look all pretty.
Since it was just Bitty and I that were going to drink the mango lassi, I halved the recipe to make just two servings, and I didn’t use fresh mangos, I used frozen, which is likely easier to find now since they’re out of season and therefore, more economical. Since that’s in the spirit of Jean’s blog, I felt it was fitting. 😉
I loved the way the recipe turned out, definitely planning to make again to pair with Indian food or just as a cooling afternoon snack. Enjoy!
- 10 oz frozen mango chunks, (or 1 fresh mango peeled and chopped)
