Mangoes! I miss ripe, non fibrous, always sweet Mangoes. Summers meant so many varieties of mangoes and a constant sugar high. Mangoes as is, mangoes made into beverages, mangoes on ice creams, mangoes pretty much everywhere, all the time all through Summer. Mangoes here are lack luster 90% of the time. They are sour, fibrous and just not those Mangoes. Sigh.
But hey, there is Mango pulp made with Indian Mangoes available easily, and that can be used in several ways! Some of the Canned pulp/purees have a good content of sugar, so check before buying. I used some of my Mango pulp stash to whip up my favorite Lassi with So Delicious’s New set of Unsweetened Yogurts. The yogurts work beautifully in this Lassi. Add cardamom or saffron for variations!
A big pitcher of plain or Mango Lassi was served up an hour after lunch on the weekends. The fresh mangoes would be ripe enough that added sweet was never needed.
You can make your own non dairy yogurt too, with any thick non dairy milk. I usually make mine with cashew milk and probiotic powder. Add 1 capsule for 2 cups warmed up (105 degrees F) liquid. Then I just leave the mix to set in my oven. I keep the oven on Bread proof (100 degrees F) for the first few hours. I am planning a post on different options for yogurt, nut, coconut and other milks, adding chia or flax to thicken and so on.
