I am a latecomer to the world of mangoes and I don't really know why. I'm not a picky eater and am willing to try many new things. But somehow this big, oval shaped fruit escaped me. It was at our anniversary dinner back in June that I tasted my first mango cocktail and was delighted. When I recreated the recipe at home, I was hooked. I'd always heard the term mango lassi but never knew or paid attention to what it was. But with my new found interest in mangoes, I was now off to explore this odd sounding dish.
Flesh of 1 mango
1/2 Cup fat free Greek style yogurt
1/2 Cup low fat milk
1 Tablespoon simple syrup or other sweetener
4 Mint leaves
Dash of cinnamon
Pinch of salt
