Skinny Rose Petal Mango Lassi with Pistachios and Cardamom
A delicious creamy skinny infused rose petal mango lassi with pistachios and cardamom. This mango lassi is a real favourite of ours, especially because it is much lighter then the usual calorie and sugar laden mango lassi.
Mangoes always transport me back to my childhood. I remember how my mum used to hand me and my siblings a very ripe mango each with a teaspoon as a mid afternoon treat /bribe to shut us up (albeit not for long). It often resulted in sticky kids with mango juice running down their arms. Such an appealing thought. I know.
This Mango Lassi reminds me of those days because it really celebrates the mango. The flavour of the mango isn’t masked with copious amounts of sugar. It is enhanced very subtly with the pistachios, cardamom and rose petals that infuse into the lassi. This mango lassi is a great drink to serve at parties and BBQs. It is also great as a individual treat for you and your family. My daughter is particularly fond of this lassi and I think you will be too.
The health benefits of mangoes include; helping to lower cholesterol, having high levels of fibre, they are a good source of vitamin A and are therefore great for your eyes, they can help normalise insulin levels, they aid with digestion and they are also a great source of Vitamin C which is a known antioxidant and keeps you looking young!
I feel like I have been away from my third baby/my blog for quite some time and I have. It has been a challenging month with time off for a course and two bereavements. I had to take time out but I’m back now and will be posting regularly for you guys!
