Indian Refreshment Dessert: Mango Lassi

May 14, 2012

In Friday’s Tampa Bay Time’s they have an article about sweet treats one can make for Mom for Mother’s Day.  The one treat that stands out to me and looks to be a good one to try is the Mango Lassi which them deem an “Indian Refreshment”.

Make her a flavorful Mango Lassi by placing 1 cup plain yogurt, 1 cup chopped mango, 1/2 cup milk and 4 teaspoons sugar in a blender. Process until smooth. Pour into two short glasses. Sprinkle with ground cardamom to garnish.

From Wikipedia:

Mango lassi

Mango lassi is most commonly found in India and Pakistan though it is gaining popularity worldwide. It is made from yogurt, water and mango pulp. It may be made with or without additional sugar. It is widely available in UK, Malaysia and Singapore, due to the sizable Indian/Pakistani minority, and in many other parts of the world. In various parts of Canada, mango lassi is a cold drink consisting of sweetened kesar mango pulp mixed with yogurt, cream, or ice cream. It is served in a tall glass with a straw, often with ground pistachio nuts sprinkled on top.
