I’m a Southern girl, it’s true, and it’s taken me a few years to get fully into the taste of Indian food. I’m not sure about spicy, but over time, I’ve learned that there are lots of Indian food that I like. I’m not sure if my tastebuds have grown stronger, or I’ve just learned that having a pitcher of water nearby makes me enjoy my meal even better. Water is critical and necessary for all of us, and while I love Diet Coke, having a cool cup of water around is a much better cure for those spices. (Milk also works great!) When eating spicy Indian, I’m also very fond of the sweet and slightly tangy Mango Lassi drink. The Mango Lassi is a traditional, yogurt drink that is found in most American Indian restaurants. As it’s one of my favorite things to get to go with my spicy food along with my pitcher of cool water, I wanted to share the recipe with you.
Pfister contacted me with information about their new Clarify Faucet, and I though about how great this Faucet would be to have in my house, when I need a large glass of water. You see, I don’t have a water filter in my refrigerator, but I want to know that if I’m drinking a huge glass of water after big bowl of chili or spicy Indian Samosas the water is high quality. This new faucet is the only Pfister model that is currently available with Xtract™ technology. It is a 1-Handle, Pull- Down Kitchen Faucet (MSRP $442.67). Right now it is available exclusively through Home Depot. This faucet is a great way to make wonderful fresh ice for your Mango Lassi
- 1/2 Cup of Ice (from Water filtered by the Clarity Faucet)
- 1 Jar of Mango Baby Food (I used BeechNut Mango, Papaya and Kiwi, for some added zing)
- 1 6oz container of Plain Greek Yogurt
- 1 Cup Frozen Mango (or 1 fresh and ripe mango)
- 2-3 Teaspoons of Sugar (2 is closer to the traditional Lassi that I’ve had in restaurants, but I know some people like sweeter drinks.
To make this, all you need to do is add all of your ingredients into the blender and blend until smooth and creamy! It will be delicious! And the best part is when you use filtered water with >the Clarity Faucet, you know that the water is pure and the gunk is cleared out of the water from the tap!
