Creamy drink with mango, yogurt and sugar
Mango lassi is a delicious and creamy drink with mango, yogurt and sugar. It is an excellent drink for a hot summer day or as an accessory to a spicy dish such as lamb vindaloo.
I use frozen mango in this recipe, hence the odd weight, but of course it is perfectly fine to use a whole ripe mango instead. It's just easier to get hold of good frozen mango than fresh around here.
This time I used some crushed pistachios as a garnish, but of course it can be excluded. Other ingredients you can add are e.g. cardamom and saffron. Both cardamom and saffron should be added very little at a time and taste until you are satisfied. You can also add 5-6 ice cubes to the mixer to partly cool down the drink, but also to dilute it a little.
