I am inappropriately excited about this recipe. You see, I’ve been a closet mango lassi lover for the last 3 years and finally …finally, I can share this love with you. The love affair started one Summer when my now-husband (then-boyfriend) casually mentioned that he commissioned a local farmer to peel, slice, and freeze 20 pounds of mango for our humble home. TWENTY POUNDS. He also commissioned a (slightly more reasonable) 7 pounds of blueberries. Our humble garage freezer was packed to the brim with orange and blue fruit.

I felt like I was on a Food Network cooking challenge show, where the secret ingredient is, “frozen mango, now GO!” I experimented with a wide variety of mango recipes and finally, finally landed on the most delicious lassi.

A mango lassi, for those of you who don’t know, is an Indian-inspired mango drink. It’s usually made with yogurt, mango, sugar, and some kind of spice (usually cardamom or cumin). The variety that Austin, my husband, and I loved the most was a Paleo (even Vegan)-friendly version involving frozen mango, a touch of fresh OJ, a few tablespoons of creamy full-fat coconut milk, and pinch or two of ground cardamon. We happily gulped down our morning frozen Paleo mango lassi for 5 months and, though I never thought I’d say it, I miss our monstrous supply of mango.

While brainstorming a fruit-centered recipe for the blog, a memory of our Summer of Paleo Mango Lassi’s blinked into life. OF COURSE! A mango lassi-based smoothie bowl is just the ticket. For this recipe, I added a little fresh mango, toasted coconut, and extra sprinkle of the ground cardamon to the top.

These would make great make-ahead fruit bowls for the freezer, too! Just prep, spoon into small mason jars, and set in the refrigerator to thaw the night before.

Enjoy!
