Mango Lassi

9 Jul

My favourite fruit is Mango! Lassi (a yogurt based drink known for helping digestion, most popular in Punjab, India)  is my favourite too! To combine both is a match made in heaven! So thick and sweet and flavourful! In these hot days all you can think are cold beverages and my husband loves such refreshing surprises after a tiring day at work. Just a quick note : Make sure you have everything cold! Remember to adjust the ingredients, you can add or reduce anything as per your taste.

Tip: You can add a scoop of vanilla ice-cream just before serving! Yum!

All you need:

  1. 1  mango preferably Alphonso washed and peeled, cut into pieces or 200 grams of Mango pulp
  2. 4 tbsp  plain yogurt
  3. 4 tbsp sugar (you can adjust this as per your taste and the sweetness of the mango)
  4. 1/2 tsp ground ginger (make sure this does not overpower the taste of the shake)
  5. 1/2 cup milk
  6. A pinch of cardamom powder
  7. Ice cubes (as many as per the strength of your blender! Ha! )
  8. 2 tbsp of fresh cream (makes it creamier and indulgent, this can be optional)
  9. 1 tsp chopped roasted almonds or dry fruits of your choice (For garnishing)

Ready, Set, Go:

  1. Put all the ingredients except the milk and dry fruits in a blender, blending it as fine as you would like it.
  2. Add the milk, little by little until you reach a desired consistency.
  3. Pour in glasses. Garnish with dry fruits. Throw in some more ice cubes if you like. I sprinkled a little cardamom powder on top.
  4. Slurp! Serve cold.
