The first time I had this drink at an Indian restaurant, I couldn’t believe how delicious it was. I don’t often go out for meals, so I decided that I should try to recreate the flavor at home. The result is this yummy drink. This makes a refreshing breakfast, full of fruit and calcium and protein from the yogurt. Or serve it alongside a spicy Indian dinner – the yogurt and the cold will help cut the spiciness. Or enjoy it for an afternoon snack! It would be a great pick-me-up. Frozen mango chunks may be substituted for the fresh mango. (Do not thaw.)
What you need:
- 2 mangoes, peeled, pitted, and cubed
- 1 c. plain or vanilla yogurt
- 1 T. lime juice
- 1 c. ice cubes
- 1 T. sugar
- 1/4 t. ginger
- dash of cardamom, optional, for garnish
- glasses and straws
- measuring cups and spoons
Time: 10 minutes.

In a blender, puree the mangoes until smooth. Add the yogurt and lime juice and blend briefly. Add the ice and ginger and blend. Pour into four glasses. Sprinkle with cardamom, if using, and serve with a straw.
