A crappy picture and a yummy treat for your Trim Tuesday. This feels and tastes like a milkshake, but it's so much healthier. I love anything mango, so I was sold on it without even a taste. But then I tasted, and of course, it did not disappoint. The cardamon and pistachios give it such a rich and succulent taste. It definitely "takes you away". If sharing with kids, I recommend leaving those 2 ingredients out as it can be a little much. This would be great for a special occasion drink also.
So, be inspired to be healthy today. Don't be like me, I had a rotten week last week and ended up consuming my weight in junk food. I vow to be better this week.
1 cup vanilla or plain yogurt
1/2 cup milk
1 1/2 cup chopped mango (peeled and stone removed)
1-2 tablespoons sugar, to taste
Whipped cream (optional, for garnish)
pinch of ground cardamom (optional)
2 T. ground pistachios (optional)
Put yogurt, milk, mango, and sugar in a blender and mix well, about 90 seconds. Pour into glasses and garnish with whipped cream, ground cardamom and pistachios. Makes about 2 cups.
