Sweater weather is definitely here and while I adore the snow, I am craving just a bit of sunshine. Or maybe I just need some Vitamin D…
This recipe came about from a book club get-together with my mom and my sister. We love to get together and chat about a book we’ve all read, enjoy some good food, and usually a cocktail or at least some wine. This time we read A Place for Us, which is such a good book! If you’re hosting a book club for this book, look for a full post on it coming soon!
This was my first ever Mango Lassi, or Lassi in general, and in true Nutmeg-style, I added booze to it. A Lassi is a traditional yogurt drink from India that usually contains water, sugar, fruit, and yogurt. To keep with the tropical vibe of the mango that I chose for this version, I added rum, which felt all too natural. Because I don’t really care for overly sweet drinks, I chose honey over the sugar for this recipe.
2 cups frozen mango chunks
1/2 cup whole milk greek yogurt
1/2 cup water
1/4 cup honey
1/2 cup white rum
1/2 teaspoon turmeric (optional)
Combine all ingredients into a blender and blend until smooth. Taste to make sure you have the sweetness correct because every bag of frozen mango can have a different amount of sweetness. This recipe make enough for 4 people, however it is a small glass for each. For my mom and my sister, it was just enough for us because the drink is very thick and rich with that yogurt.
