Mango Lassi

Refreshing Mango and Yoghurt drink

Not many people will say no to a Mango Lassi. It’s such a refreshing drink and the flavour of the sweet mango works so well with the tangy yoghurt.

In the Punjab, Lassi is a popular traditional yoghurt-based drink that is welcomed after a day of working in the heat or even as a coolant during the hot summer months. Lassi is a blend of yoghurt, water or milk and spices. Mango is a popular one – and my kids are always asking for it.

You’ll be surprised at just how simple this is to pull together.
