For a sweet treat without the added fat and calories, try mango lassi. It's rich in potassium, a mineral that helps you maintain healthy blood pressure.
1/3 cup dried mango (available at specialty food stores), chopped
3 ripe mangoes, peeled
1 cup unsweetened vanilla soy milk
1/2 cup plain low-fat yogurt
4 pinches ground cardamom
In a small bowl, soak dried mango in water for 10 minutes. Meanwhile, slice mango flesh. In a blender, process dried and fresh mango until smooth. Add soy milk, yogurt and 2 cups ice cubes and process until smooth. Top each glass with a pinch of cardamom.
