My partnership with FRESHFARM markets kicks off today with an event at Dupont Circle Farmers Market. Come join us at 11:00 am for Mango Lassis and Cucumber raita.. perfect summer foods!
Mango Lassi With Honey
You can use your choice of fruit here – try this with bananas, or ripe peaches or raspberries!
½ cup plain yogurt
1 small fully ripe mango
2 -3 mint leaves
1 tablespoon honey
¼ cup water
5-6 ice cubes
Optional: Garnish with ground cardamom and a drizzle of honey
In a blender, add the yogurt, mango, mint leaves, honey, water and ice cubes. Blend well. Add more water if you like a thinner consistency. Garnish and serve immediately.
There are so many amazing farmers at the market. Here are a few that sell yogurt and a few that sell honey.
