Make a mango lassi

Ataulfo mangos may be hard to pronounce, but this buttery smooth yellow fruit is easy to enjoy. Enjoying this mango straight up is always a win- Carefully cutting around the pit. But for a special treat, try a mango lassi. Ataulfo mango cutAtaulfo mangos are similar to the Alphonso variety that is popular in India, so why not try it out in a classic Indian yogurt drink like the lassi?

I’m experimenting now with divvying up the ingredients into pint sized mason jars for quick and easy blending each morning. But so far my family and I end up drinking all of them right away!

Ataulfo Mango Lassi
1 Ataulfo mango, skin cut away and fruit removed from pit
½ cup plain unsweetened yogurt of your choice
1 cup milk of your choice
1 tsp. rose water (found in the baking aisle)
1 pinch ground cardamom
1 pinch of sugar or other sweetener (optional)

Place all ingredients in your blender (or a wide-mouth pint jar for immersion blenders) and blend until smooth. The ataulfo mangos are so sweet now, you might not need any sugar or sweetener! Enjoy, preferably with a straw.
