I am so short on time today with no time to cook. So I whipped up a Lassa for my lunch. My friend is from india and they call smoothies Lassa. She sent me a recipe and even bought me a can of mango pulp. Which I love, However it has so much sugar and I am really trying to keep my sugar intake low. So this is my low sugar recipe with pineapple. I bought fresh fruit at the grocery already cut in spears to make it easier. That way I can make this on the fly.
2 spears fresh mango
2 spears fresh pineapple
2 pods of Green Cardamon
2/3 cup of plain greek yogurt (organic preferred)
handful of ice
In a blender put in your mango, pineapple and ice. Open cardamon pods and take out the seeds. Smash all the seeds in a mortar and pestle. Add to blender. Blend thoroughly, stopping to push everything down.
Add your yogurt and pulse a couple of times. Now it is ready to enjoy. This will be thick, so you might want a straw. If you want it sweet add some honey. I liked it not being sweet.
