I have to confess something.  When I first heard that the next round of Let’s Lunch, was a liquid lunch, I immediately thought of martinis, even though the liquid lunch was to support Karen, as she goes in for her cancer surgery.  I figured, Karen, may love a Martini right about then, as well.  I had planned to lay out a few dozen glasses, some good vodka, lemons, limes, and olives to invite the Let’s Lunch crew over for a little liquid lunch.  Then I remembered a refreshing and filling Mango Lassi I had recently.



Time took off from my life the past couple of weeks, and I did not get to my martini infused lunch.  Right now we are heading home after a client event earlier in the day;  we are hungry.  What to have for lunch became the conversation in the car.  While pondering that thought, I kept thinking about these gorgeous mangos that I grabbed on sale.  Lunch, mangos, hungry!  Smoothie.  Mango Lassi.

We both love mango lassies but have never made them at home;  it is usually a treat to be enjoyed over Indian dinner out.  We made a quick detour on the way home to grab some yogurt, and then headed home.  Making this lassi was like the blind leading the blind;  no recipe, no idea, just our taste-buds.  We tossed some mangos, plain yogurt, left-over coconut milk, cardamon, and Kaffir lime simple syrup into the blender;  a couple of quick whirls of the blender and we had a thick cognition.  It was sweet, creamy, and heavenly scented with the coconut milk and cardamon.  Not only was it a filling liquid lunch, but a tropical one, as well.  Perfect!

Karen, I hope you are feeling better this week;  resting, and enjoying all of these delicious liquid lunches we have sent you.  xo
