Mango lassi

Breakfast: Mango lassi

Lunch: Vegetables with lime and wholemeal couscous

Dinner: A quick soba noodle stir fry before the Jays game!

I love getting seasonal fruits and veggies, and when I saw a box of mangoes for $5 near our house I couldn't resist. The Queensland mangoes in Aus were phenomenal, but the ones in Canada are mad tasty and great to make a whole range of breakfast goodies when it's hot.

You might have had a mango lassi in an Indian restaurant before, and in Indian cuisine a lassi can be either sweet or savoury and made with a whole range of spices and fruits. This variation is a little lighter and doesn't use a sweetener, as the mangoes make it sweet enough.

You'll need
(Feeds 1)
1 mango, diced
1 1/2 tbsp natural plain yogurt
1/2 cup milk of your choice (I use almond milk)
3-4 ice cubes

Blend everything together and serve immediately!

As well as being ridiculously amazing and tasting of pure summer, mangoes contain a shedload of vitamins and antioxidants, and even omega-3 and omega-6. For something so tasty to also be so healthy is just heaven, really.
