I can clearly remember a moment in my life when I said to myself silently, “I’ll never be able to have a lassi again.” I said that about a great many things until I realized just how very wrong I was.
Being vegan doesn’t mean restriction. It gives us freedom! Our food choices are so varied, colorful, and so very much better for our hearts, minds, and bodies as we endeavor to do the least harm possible.
We eat and drink so many things we thought we’d be giving up. As my T-shirt says, “Anything you can eat, I can eat vegan!”
Vegan Mango Lassi
1 cup plain non-dairy yogurt (I use soy yogurt for the extra tang)
1/2 cup non-dairy milk (choose according to your tastes, but I again used soy)
1 cup chopped mango (peeled and stone removed)
4 teaspoons sugar, or agave, to taste
A dash of ground cardamom (optional)
Place all of the ingredients except the cardamom in a blender, and blend until smooth. Pour into a tall glass, and enjoy!
