Melon Mango Lassi


I have heard that some people drink the same thing all year round: coffee, of course, and water. Along with classics like wine and beer. Sometimes they get tempted to buy some organic lemonade with guarana (which they immediately regret). But that's it. Well, my fingers are already falling asleep writing about this much monotony! Life is just too short for boring drinks.

As a diligent reader of the FLSK magazine you are familiar with the wide variety of drinks and as an adventurous explorer you know the pleasures of an unknown taste. Drinking is pure pleasure, because in liquid form, different nuances combine in an exciting way. Like in this recipe the orange power of melon and mango, refined with a cooling yoghurt. A wonderful way to enjoy the summer to the max at your breakfast. Long live diversity!

The shopping list:

  • 2 ripe Mangos 
  • 1 ripe honeydew melon 
  • 300 g yoghurt, reduced fat or a plant-based version is also possible 
  • 400 ml orange juice, freshly pressed 
  • 2 tbsp. honey 1 lemon 
  • Mint leaves 
  • Ground cardamom to taste

It's simple as that:

  1. Peel the skin off the mangos (works well when they are ripe), remove the stone and roughly chop the flesh. Throw it into the blender! 
  2. Quarter the melon, remove the seeds and peel it. Put the roughly cut flesh into the blender.
  3. Blend well together with the yoghurt, the orange juice, a few dashes of lemon juice and the honey. 
  4. Test flavor and consistency: Too bland? Add lemon juice. Too sour? More honey! Too thick? Some milk, water or juice will help.
  5. For a nice presentation in a glass, sprinkle mint leaves and ground cardamom over the lassi.

Thanks to yoghurt and fruit, the breakfast drink also fills you up a bit and can even replace a meal. But it also fits perfectly to an extensive brunch in the sun. Because the lake does not care whether you have a bikini shape or not. 

Tip: You can prepare the melon-mango lassi the evening before and fill it into your FLSK. If all the ingredients are coming out of the refrigerator, the drink stays nice and cool in your FLSK. If not, you can also add a few cubes of ice. Before drinking, shake the lassi until it is nice and frothy.
