Turmeric Mango Lassi
A lassi is a yogurt-based drink originating in India. Consumed to help cool the palate after a fiery curry, lassis are also perfect for a rich & creamy breakfast smoothie.
3/4 teaspoon ground turmeric, plus extra for garnish
2 teaspoons hot water
2/3 cup Greek-style yogurt (preferably full-fat – 4%)
1/3 cup iced water
1 ripe mango, peeled & chopped (frozen can be used but this is so much better with really ripe, fresh mango), plus extra for garnish
1 to 1-1/2 tablespoons honey (plus a little honeycomb for garnish, optional)
1/8 teaspoon ground cardamom
1 Regular Girl stick pack or scoop
Combine turmeric & water in a small bowl: let stand until cooled.
Place yogurt, iced water, mango, honey, cardamom, turmeric mixture & Regular Girl* in a blender & blend until smooth (or use an immersion blender).
Pour into serving glass. Using a fine strainer, sprinkle the top with extra turmeric & top with a little diced mango. Place a small chunk of honeycomb on skewer & sit the skewer on the rim of the glass. Serves 1.
* Or stir Regular Girl into the glass after you’ve poured the blended lassi, but before garnishing
