Mango Pineapple Lassa

I am so short on time today with no time to cook.  So I whipped up a Lassa for my lunch.  My friend is from india and they call smoothies Lassa.  She sent me a recipe and even bought me a can of mango pulp.  Which I love, However it has so much sugar and I am really trying to keep my sugar intake low.  So this is my low sugar recipe with pineapple. I bought fresh fruit at the grocery already cut in spears to make it easier.  That way I can make this on the fly.

2 spears fresh mango
2 spears fresh pineapple
2 pods of Green Cardamon
2/3 cup of  plain greek yogurt (organic preferred)
handful of ice

In a blender put in your mango, pineapple and ice.  Open cardamon pods and take out the seeds.  Smash all the seeds in a mortar and pestle. Add to blender.  Blend thoroughly, stopping to push everything down.
Add your yogurt and pulse a couple of times.  Now it is ready to enjoy.  This will be thick, so you might want a straw. If you want it sweet add some honey.  I liked it not being sweet.

German Potatoes

I have no idea why these are called German. I tasted a recipe years ago, and someone called them german potatoes.  I created the potatoes in college as a dinner staple.  This is a delicious take on potatoes, and my family loves this flavorful dish so much. You can even cook them up on your grill using a castiron skillet.
