Vegan Mango Lassie

This recipe started as a spin on a delicious shake in traditional Indian cuisine. I find it to make the perfect sip for transitioning to “EVERYTHING IS PUMPKIN SPICE” season, while still residing in a hot, semi-tropical climate.

The key spice in this recipe is CARDAMOM! This singular use of a warming “carminative” provides a unique flavor, separating it from the Pumpkin Spice craze of Autumn. Paired with a juicy tropical fruit like mango gives it a perfect transition out of the Summer.

Vegan Mango Lassie

Ingredients

  • 2-3 cups Frozen Mango Chunks
  • 1 Tbsp Date Syrup (or 2 medjool dates, pitted and soaked for 10 minutes)
  • 1 banana (optional)
  • 2/3 cup or more Cashew or Coconut Milk
  • 1/8 tsp cardamom (or more if desired)

Directions

  1. Place banana, cardamom, date syrup (or dates) and milk in the bottom of a Vitamix or similar blender (keep these ingredients closest to the BLADE of your blender)
  2. Place frozen mangos on top of bananas and milk (OR… furthest from the blade to avoid damage and extend the life of your blender)
  3. Blend until fairly smooth.
  4. Transfer and enjoy!
