My mother received a huge mango the other day from a friend. Half of it went into some mango salsa; the other half into this rich mango lassi, essentially a smoothie made with mango and yogurt. I always order one when out to eat at an Indian restaurant. They’re really quite easy to make.
Mango Lassi Recipe
- 1 cup plain yogurt
- 1/2 cup milk
- 1 cup chopped mango (peeled and stone removed)
- 4 teaspoons sugar, to taste
- A dash of ground cardamom (optional)
Put mango, yogurt, milk, sugar and cardamom into a blender and blend for 2 minutes, then pour into individual glasses, and serve. Can sprinkle with a little cardamom.
The lassi can be kept refrigerated for up to 24 hours.
Yield: Makes about 2 cups.
