Chill out summer grumps- Rose Mango Lassi

Rose Mango Lassi

Lassi is a delicious cooling yogurt drink often served with Indian meals. Most common is the mango lassi, but rose is a close second, and then there are salty lassi with cumin and so on and so forth. Well this recipe is not really a traditional lassi recipe, but my inspired version- hot day, grumpy dump mood, and what was in my freezer...including the remaining marc from rose petal elixir. I often save and freeze marc from elixirs or tinctures or honey to be reused...elderberry, rose, honeysuckle, lemon balm, mint etc.
This is a lovely and delicious summer soother- for hot days, a bad mood, low energy, or summertime blahs. It has probiotics, healthy fats, minerals (if you use nettle tea!) and nervine relaxing heart soothing and energy balancing properties.
  • 8 oz whole milk plain yogurt
  • 2-4 oz nettle hibiscus tea (or whatever herb infusion you like and have on hand)
  • 1 -2 fresh mango (peeled and seed removed) or 2 c frozen mango pieces
  • 1/4 cup rose elixir marc (or use fresh or dried rose petals)
  • 1 tbsp honey
  • 1 tbsp coconut oil
  • 1 tbsp rose hydrosol
  • squirts of various nervine tinctures- oats, tulsi, rose, lavender, etc)
  • 1 tbsp maca powder (or use ashwaganda, shatavari etc)
Blend all the goodies up in your blender and serve cool.
