Mango Lassi

Lassis are  traditional Punjabi beverage which blend yogurt with water, salt, and spices into a cooling summer drink. Wikipedia says the idea of making sweet lassis with fruit is a relatively recent variation, but the mango flavor is  so delightful in this that I truly can't imagine the drink without it. Mangoes are native to India, and more than 50% of the world's mangoes are grown in India.

Summer is no fun without mangoes and here is one sweet lassi recipe which so refreshing and perfect for hot summer days.


Ingredients:

Mango -1 or mango pulp -1/2 cup

 Yogurt(fresh) 1 cup

Sugar 1 tbsp or as needed

Green cardamon powder a pinch

Saffron  2-3 strands

1/2 cup crushed ice cubes


Method-


1-Peel the mango skin and separate the pulp from the seed. Discard seed.(omit this step if using mango pulp.)

2-Combine all the ingredients in a mixer/blender and blend till smooth and serve chilled.




 Note- Do not add sugar if using sweetened mango pulp.
