If you like pina coladas, then you should probably make this mango version for your next brunch, taco night, or just a summer night chilling on the porch.
This post is sponsored in conjunction with #BrunchWeek. I received product samples from sponsor companies to aid in the creation of the #BrunchWeek recipes. All opinions are mine alone.
Every year that I have participated in #BrunchWeek I have shared a brunch cocktail (2014 Raspberry Tequila Sunrise, 2015 Grape Mojito, 2016 Boozy Margarita Smoothie) and this year is no exception. The funniest part about this trend is that I don’t really drink that much but enjoy coming up with fun concoctions just like I do with food. When pondering what to make with the Nielsen-Massey rose water I remembered that mango often is paired with rose water in Indian cuisine, such as in a Mango Lassi. However, I’ve already shared a Mango Lassi cocktail so I applied these flavors to a Pina Colada instead.
But then I was curious, what is the difference between a Mango Lassi and a Pina Colada? After googling, the two are not all that different. A Lassi is usually yogurt, water, mango, and no booze, while a Colada is usually coconut cream/milk, pineapple, ice, and rum. So if you add mango to a Colada it’s basically a boozy Mango Lassie. Which would mean my Mango Lassi cocktail was actually a Mango Pina Colada and now here I am repeating myself. But I digress.
Whether or not this is a repeat recipe should not deter your from the fact that it’s stinking delicious. And if you prefer the mocktail (or Mango Lassi) version just simply leave out the alcohol. The ingredients are all thrown into a blender together until smooth, just like a smoothie. And now I wonder if what I made is actually a mango smoothie? Heck who knows what the proper name is, just drink it and enjoy! Maybe enjoy it while entering the #BrunchWeek giveaway!
