Mangoes are very popular in our house so I often buy them by the case from a man who stands on the corner selling fruit just a block away from where we live.
There is something really fun about buying a case of mangoes from the guy on the corner. Not sure what it is exactly but it’s definitely a lot of fun.
Once we’ve got the mangoes home we eat them in lots of different ways. Plain, mixed in yogurt, chopped into salsa, tossed in a salad or a skillet, blended in a margarita or whipped into this yummy Mango Lassi.
When I make this shake after I workout I add protein powder (I have a few listed below that I like), otherwise I stick to just the yogurt and mango (which is also how I make it for my kids).
As many of you know from this video, I’ve been experimenting with dairy around here. I’ve been buying full fat yogurt and enjoying it less often BUT when I shot this video I used Voskos non-fat Greek yogurt (they also sell a full fat version). Voskos Greek yogurt is great, especially when you opt for low or no fat because it’s so rich and creamy (and high in protein which is nice as a pre-post snack) that you can barely taste a difference.
If you want to check them out, bop on offer to facebook and give them a like. They share of creative ways to use Greek yogurt on their page, so it’s a good way to get inspired!
As for this recipe, use any % yogurt you like. Non-fat, low fat, full fat… they all work and taste delicious.
Here are some of the protein powders I like (as I mentioned in the video):
(full disclosure: this recipe was sponsored by Voskos. i only work with companies that i authentically like and enjoy. everything i share in the post if of my own opinion)
