Sweet ripe yellow mangoes have officially welcomed summer and with our lucky find of some yummy mangoes at Costco, we made this easy drink which is a specialty from Punjab. Back home in India yogurt is said to be the best remedy to beat the scorching heat, so lassi gets very popular around this time be it plain, mango or any other flavor.
Prep Time: 5 mins
Sugar: 1 tablespoon or more to your preference
Curd/Yogurt: 1/2 cup
Milk: 1/4 cup
Cardamom powder (optional): a pinch
* We suggest Alphonso for the best result as it is pulpy and sweet, but you can substitute it with any other kind.
Peel the mango skin and cut up the fruit. beat it in the mixer with sugar and cardamom until smooth. Pour in cold yogurt and milk and beat once more. Adjust it to a pourable consistency by adding more milk if needed. Serve chill.
