Frozen Mango Yogurt Dessert with Pistachios April 30, 2010

Last night, as part of a monthly cooking club organized by Kirsten of I Eat Veg, I made a quick and easy mango yogurt dessert to go with our Indian theme for the month.  I’m not going to lie–I almost felt guilty bringing such an easy treat to a club that is all about cooking, trying new things, and sharing recipes with friends (so I supplemented dessert with a mango summer-y drink).  But really, who doesn’t love something that is easy and healthy and tastes good?   Full disclosure: I used frozen mango chunks from Trader Joe’s to make this. I didn’t even peel the mangoes myself!!  Such a slacker!  Here we go….

Blend the frozen mango chunks in a blender until they are smooth enough to easily spread into a small bowl. Spread the mango in the bottom of a small dessert bowl.  Freeze that for at least 20 minutes.  Spread vanilla Greek yogurt on top of the mango, and place back in the freezer for another 20 minutes.  You can freeze the mango alone longer, but if you freeze the mango with the yogurt too long, the yogurt gets a little weird.  Right before serving, sprinkle with chopped pistachios.

It was delicious and creative! You nailed it. AND the drink more than made up for any simplicity. 🙂
