This is a delicious and cooling beverage to beat the super HOT weather that we are having now. It is also mango season here so this is the most prefect beverage to have now. And and and it is super easy to prepare.

There was a Deli cafe that we use to go here that makes nice lassi. Plain lassi was RM4 and mango lassi was RM5 back then but i don't know how much now.But now i know making my own will be so so so much tastier, fresh and save quite a bit ..lol

Mango Lassi .. (印度乳酪)
recipe adapted from the book of 30 minutes Indian by Sunil Vijayakar
i make 2/3 portion of this recipe with my modification in purple
 
 
 
Ingredients:
3 ripe fresh mangoes, peeled and stone
and roughly chopped or 300ml/1/2 pint canned mango pulp
(i used 2 ripe fresh mangoes about 1 cup (250 ml measuring cup) mangoes after peeled, stone and chopped into cubes)
500 ml/17 fl oz natural yogurt
(i used 1 tub marigold brand low fat yogurt about 135ml)
250 ml/8 fl oz water
(i used 100 ml fresh milk)
1-2 tablespoon caster sugar
(i used 1/2 teaspoon caster sugar, as i found that my mangoes are quite sugar itself)
some ice cubes (i added)
 
 
To Do:
  1. Put the fresh mango, if using into a food processor or blender and blend until smooth. Set aside.
  2. Blend the yogurt, water and sugar until smooth. Divide the mango pulp between 4 tall glasses and pour over the yogurt mixture. Serve chilled.

  2. Hi Doreen,

    I realise many bloggers have made mango lassi this month for LTU milk and AFF Indian. Timely, the mangoes seem to be the best for all of you at the northern hemisphere... Sadly, all we do here in Australia is drooling at these juicy mangoes :p
