Mango Lassi with Ginger and Cardamom

I’m feeling a little under the weather today.  Despite getting plenty of sleep last night, I am exhausted. And, I have no appetite so I haven’t eaten much today.  I suspect a day-long bout of nausea is due to this pregnancy, too.  So, after trying quite ridiculously and unsuccessfully to get my husband to leave work and fetch me a smoothie from Jamba Juice, it was time for me to nourish my body with a healthy homemade snack.

I scanned the kitchen for a few ideas.  Honey and ginger always make me feel better, and I made a fresh batch of homemade yogurt the other day.  In the freezer was a stash of frozen mango.  All these ingredients reminded me of a mango lassi, a comforting and tasty Indian yogurt drink.  So, I tossed it all in the blender and ended up with a perfectly nutritious and delicious pick-me-up.

Mango Lassi with Ginger and Cardamom

3/4 cup milk

3/4 cup yogurt (I love using homemade yogurt)

1 cup chopped mango (I use the frozen stuff from Trader Joe’s)

1/8 teaspoon cardamom

1 inch piece peeled ginger

1 tablespoon sugar

1 tablespoon honey

dash of Kosher salt

a few ice cubes

Pour milk into blender.  Add all other ingredients.  Blend until smooth.
