Mango Lassi Pops

My vegetable coconut korma post had me thinking about all things Indian last week. Mangoes were on sale, and I had quite a few lying around, so I wanted to make mango lassis. A mango lassi is an Indian smoothy made from plain yogurt, mango puree, and sugar.

I usually don’t like to add extra sugar to anything I imagine should be healthy, so I scouted around the fridge for something I could substitute. I had some vanilla yogurt with natural sugar, which was a good starting place, and then I decided some white grape juice concentrate would be a perfect solution.

After I blended everything up, I decided the kids might enjoy it even more as popsicles. I poured the smoothy into paper nut cups (but any paper cups will do), and then inserted wooden spoons.

Mango Lassi Pops

2 cups vanilla yogurt
1/4 cup white grape juice concentrate (100% juice only*)
2 large ripe mangoes, cut in chunks

1. Blend all ingredients in a blender or a food processor until smooth. Pour into paper cups and insert wooden spoons or popsicle sticks. Freeze for 6 hours, or overnight.

2. Peel off paper to serve.

*I left out the fact that this is supposed to be 100% juice, earlier. Sorry for the oversight.
