Lassi come home


Ever have mango lassi? It's a creamy, sweet Indian drink that often is far too sweet when served at Indian restaurants (and probably a million calories).

Mango_lassi_ingredientsThe primary ingredients are mango and yogurt, and since the folks at Voskos sent me a variety of their yogurt products to check out, I thought I'd whip up my own version of mango lassi for an afternoon snack.

 Here's what I used:

1/2 cup frozen mango chunks (60 cal.)

1 cup nonfat plain Greek yogurt (140 cal.)

2 teaspoons agave syrup (40 cal.)

1/2 cup unsweetened vanilla Almond Breeze (20 cal.)

It came out quite nice -- less sweet than the restaurant variety, very filling and loaded with protein (24 grams in the yogurt alone!).

And now for some free yogurt!

Would you like to try some Voskos Greek yogurt? The plain nonfat version was very good but the traditional (read full-fat) with honey was To. Die. For. I split the container with my niece; that half-cup was 140 calories of heaven.

How do you use Greek yogurt?

In recipes, smoothies, straight outta the fridge?
