Taste & Create with Tangerine's Mango Drink
This is my first month with Taste & Create. I have read many posts for this event in the past and decided it was right up my alley so I signed up! I was paired with Rachel of Tangerine's Kitchen. When I found out who my partner was, I went to her site and checked out her postings to see what I would like to make the most. I love Indian food....as a matter of fact, I'm devastated that the one and only restaurant we had in our area closed. One of my favorite things to have when I would go would be the Mango Lassi. SO, imagine my delight when I see that Rachel had a mango drink on her site. I had originally had planned to make the Banana/Cardamon shake, but when I went back to her site the other day and saw she had a Mango drink, I changed my mind....and I will make the Banana shake later!
Rachel had made this drink for another event and had adapted her recipe from someone else's. I basically followed Rachel, but ended up using canned mangos as the fresh one's here were all too green. It turned out scrumptious and I am so pleased! I now have a recipe to make my favorite drink!
