Champagne Mango Lassi

Champagne Mango Lassi

A key ingredient to kids enjoying meals is having them involved in creating them.

“Let us know when breakfast is ready!” yelled the kids as they went downstairs to play.

“It’ll be ready when you help me make it!” I yelled back to them. They stopped on the stairs, not sure about what to do with that one. They wanted to play, but they also wanted to eat. I’m more like a bear, I can go without food for extended periods of time. Kids are more like goldfish, they eat when they see food.

Mango Lassi

We had 20 fresh Champagne mangos that needed some love. We had vanilla yogurt, honey, ice cubes, and even vanilla ice cream. It wasn’t going to be the kale cocktail of yesteryear, but it was going to be a fun Saturday morning.

Each child was assigned an ingredient and they were careful with not spilling, how much to put in, and what went in what order. They all watched it blend with the same intensity as Minecraft (slight exaggeration … ). We poured and they identified what they could taste. We sat down for waffles and lassies and they commented again how good the shakes were. They finished and went off to their Saturday games.

Little chefs in the making, one lassie at a time.

Champagne Mango Lassi (Smoothie)

  • 4 Champagne Mangos
  • Drool honey in for a while
  • Cup of vanilla yogurt
  • Cup of ice cubes (if you want to cool it down and not have it so thick)
  • 2 scoops vanilla ice cream (optional if kids aren’t around)
  • Cardamon (I didn’t have any on hand, but sounds good)

I don’t like to call them excuses. They’re priorities. With a handful of exceptions, we usually have a choice in our actions. They just need to be prioritized.

    Cute story Bradley sounds like a Saturday morning at our house, when the kids are here, and if I hide the chocolate pops that I used for christmas treats. There is no chance of a healthy breakfast if they see those.

      Thanks, Ida. It’s amazing how much you can get across if distractions are out of the way! Hide (or trash) the junk and they’re all in for the good stuff … as long as they don’t know the bad stuff is an option.
