Key Lime Pie Mango Lassi

Hello, Mangos.  I’ve been waiting for you.Glenn MangosMy love for this fruit runs deep. I’m ready for mango picking, mango parties, and mango rashes.  I’ll never run out of mango recipes to share with you.Mango Lassi in the blenderI’m starting this season with a mango smoothie of sorts. Who needs a recipe to make a smoothie?  No one!  I promise this is more than that. It’s a gateway mango drink that might usher you into the dangerous realm of dessert cocktails. Mango Key Lime Pie LassiIt starts off with a mango lassi, a classic Indian drink made with mango and yogurt. Now let’s say you’re making a mango lassi and you happen to have a slice of key lime pie nearby and somehow that pie… oops! … slips into the blender. What do you get?mango key lime lassiA drinkable mango key lime pie! Top it with whipped cream and some crushed ginger snaps for the full effect.  Mango Key Lime LassiThis recipe is loosey-goosey, so you can make it as healthy or decadent as you like. Forgo the yogurt for some ice cream, and you’ve got a real mango key lime pie milkshake.  And if you do that, and then you think, wouldn’t this be great with rum?  I agree, and we should be friends.

Key Lime Pie Mango Lassi
  1. 3 cups fresh or frozen mango chunks
  2. 1 cup whole milk Greek yogurt**
  3. 2 tablespoons honey*
  4. 2 teaspoons vanilla*
  5. 1 1/2 tablespoons key lime juice
  6. 4 ginger snaps, crushed
  7. whipped cream
  8. rum (optional)**
  1. Combine the mango, yogurt, honey, vanilla, (or ice cream) and key lime juice in a blender. Blend until smooth, scraping down the sides if necessary. Sample and adjust the lime juice and honey according to your taste. (Rum?**) Divide among 4 glasses. Top with a big swirl of whipped cream. Sprinkle 1 crushed ginger snap over each glass.
  1. *use vanilla ice cream in place of the yogurt, honey, and vanilla.
  2. **if you're going with ice cream, you might want to add 4 shots of rum, but rum with yogurt? That just seems weird.

Like a mango smoothie with a slice of key lime pie thrown in! Tropical sweet-tart flavor with a swirl of whipped cream and a sprinkle of ginger snap crumbs. Make it as healthy or as decadent as you like, and add rum if you're feeling spunky.
