We just returned from Malaysia where we spent our short vacation at our hometowns of Kuala Lumpur and Penang. It was real fun to get together with relatives and old friends, as well as pampering our tummies with our favourite local cuisines. But, sad to say, the quality for some of them had deteriorated and didn’t quite keep up to our expectation. Meanwhile, the food prices were marked higher than what we used to pay previously.

 

After coming back to Singapore, we stayed home most of the time as the weather has been unbearably hot and humid. To keep our body cool, we drink plenty of fluid everyday. One drink that we got hooked lately is mango lassi. It’s a seriously delicious, inexpensive and healthy pick-me-up which pleases both the eyes and the palate. Best of all, it’s incredibly easy to make even younger kids (with an adult’s supervision) can do it. Just put fresh mangoes, yogurt, milk, ice cubes and a little honey into a blender and blend until smooth. In less than 10 seconds, Ta-Da! A creamy, nourishing and refreshing mango lassi is ready! This superfast and super good drink is a must to try when mango is in season. Now, it’s just the right timing! You can choose any variety you like (ranging from India, Malaysia, Thailand and very soon Pakistan) but make sure pick those that are meaty, sweet, fragrant, fully and less fibrous.

Mango can be eaten unripe or ripen. When ripen, it is naturally sweet. It’s rich in amino acids, vitamin C and E, flavonoids, beta carotene, niacin, calcium, iron, magnesium and potassium. Your child can gain many health benefits by eating mango, such as:

  • reduce risk of cancer
  • promote good eye sight
  • help in digestion
  • improve skin complexion
  • help in anemia
  • boost memory
  • good for gaining weight – maybe not for me, hehe!

If you are looking for something cool to beat the heat, this drink is definitely healthier choice than commercial packet drink or soft drink. It’s also a simple and practical way to help your picky eaters enjoy the goodness of mango, milk and yoghurt all in one go.

Father’s Day falls on this coming Sunday. Join me and let’s toss with this mango lassi drink wishing all the wonderful dads “A Happy Father’s Day”.

  13. shia says:

    hi, just curious, what honey are u using?

    there are too many types of honey out there in the market, after contemplating for so long (months) i still haven’t got to purchasing yet.

    thanks :)

  14. shia says:

    thanks!

    what about manuka honey? ever consider it?

    what about organic honey?

    u have any idea? :D thanks

  15. shia says:

    yes indeed they are. hence i still ended up with nothing yet. has been lingering in my mind for months about introducing honey to ds. anyway, thank u very much for sharing =)

  16. shia says:

    he’s 30 months old. I’ve been procrastinating, couldn’t decide which honey to get hence dragged till now. :)

  17. Sara says:

    Can this drink be created with a variation of any fruit? For instance, can I replace the mango with a peach and still get a delicious beverage? I love mango but I currently only have peaches! But this sounds so delicious I have to try it!

    I’m so glad I came across this on tastespotting! (And a bit behind in the game, it seems–I read the Father’s Day bit and thought for a crazy moment that I’d completely mistaken the date!) My roommate has bestowed her old blender upon me, and I can’t wait to continue going overboard (*cue diabolical laughter*) with it with this mango lassi. And your boxes are absolutely gorgeous!

      Ala: Thanks for dropping by!! So sorry to confuse you with a back-dated post. I’m sure you will going to love your new toy (old blender). Let’s this simple drink be your maiden attempt. ;)
