Mango Lassi Smoothie
From EatingWell: Summer 2003
A lassi is an Indian smoothie made with yogurt, sometimes offered as an aperitif or as a "side" to calm down a fiery meal. Thanks to a ripe mango and orange-flower water, this version is sweet and fragrant. It's perfect for an afternoon refresher or an after-dinner treat.
- 1 cup chopped peeled mango
- 1/3 cup peach sorbet
- 1/2 cup nonfat vanilla yogurt
- 1/4 cup orange juice
- 1/8 teaspoon orange-flower water, (optional, see Ingredient Note)
- Place ingredients in the order listed in a blender. Pulse twice to chop mango, stir well, then blend until smooth. Serve immediately.
Tips & Notes
- Ingredient Note: Orange-flower water is a perfumy distillation of bitter-orange blossoms. Look for it at gourmet markets.
