yummy mango lassi

One of my FAVORITE drinks in the whole world!! It is light and refreshing and so very easy and YUMMY!! You can also freeze it for a super yummy frozen treat!!

2 cups of fresh chopped RIPE mango pieces (3 or 4 MED mangoes)
2 cups REAL plain good quality yogurt (I like to use Liberté)
2 to 3 tbsp REAL cream
½ TSP cardamom powder
4 to 5 tbsp RAW sugar (sometimes I use honey when I can get it at the farmers market)
whole milk can be added to desired consistency 

Peel the mangoes and chop them. In a blender or mixer, puree the mangoes with sugar or honey. Slowly add the plain yogurt, cream, the cardamom powder and blend well until really smooth. Serve over ice and sit back and enjoy!!
