Mango Yogurt Smoothie


We did have unexpected 'summer showers', quite comforting past week but the sun is back with all its vigour from today..

The Cocktail Lady hosting the 'Mixed Drinks' theme for MBP wants to blog the same, adapted from a fellow bloggers recipe:).....Sig, by hosting this particular event, you played wise here with lazy bugs like me who would preferably dig out something from the drafts to contribute to any event ;)..
I am extremely happy that I could step in the last moment since you’d liberally extended the deadline..:)

Well, I did have Ashaji’s Masala Chai on my mind for quite some time and discussed this with my sis and alas!.. she sent me pics mentioning she was all set to blog the same Chai as her second entry!..Now, all I was left with, were a few over-ripe mangoes in my fridge which made her point out a wonderful link the very next moment….

Thus, this Smoothie is adapted from Sailu’s recipe-Aam ki Lassi.


Surprisingly the mangoes with me seemed to be the same ‘Suvarnarekha’ variety she’d used for hers!..

Again, her combination of the drink proved to be just perfect and I followed blindly that yielded a soothing creamy drink for my children, esp for my daughter who helped me with the topmost picture here, and myself soon after the photography sessions :).

  1. Delicious is an understatement! DD thought they had ice cream added to them which is a compliment in itself :)

  4. Bharathy-

    the mango smoothie looks delicious, I've always missed the Indian summers and the mango season since I came to the US. Here, we get mangoes from Mexico and Florida, but it doesn't taste like the ones in India.

  32. Hi Bharathy thank you for dropping by and your lovely words of appreciation. For me food is not just about eating but enjoying every aspect of a meal be it, the ingredients that go in it, or its flavour, the dish in isolation or simply the way it looks - and hence I guess when I write it just flows from the heart. I 've been dropping in at your blog - but why no activity?? do keep in touch and come by as often as you can!
