Mango Lassi

Ingredients

1/2 cup Coffee-mate Low Fat Vanilla Natural Bliss

1 cup canned mango pulp or 2 ripe mangoes, seeded, peeled and cut into small chunks

Very small pinch of salt, optional

1/8 teaspoon ground cardamom, optional

Preparation

In a blender, combine the Coffee-mate Natural Bliss with mango and yogurt, blend for 2 minutes. Add salt and cardamom to taste and blend until creamy and smooth, about 1 minute.

Pour into small serving glasses and chill in the refrigerator until cold, about 1 hour. Enjoy!
