Mango Lassi (Indian Summer Cooler)





Introduction: Mango Lassi (Indian Summer Cooler)

Lassi is a yogurt based drink which is served cold. It basically originated in India and Pakistan. During scorching summer Lassi is a favorite among the people.

Here I have made the sweeter version of Lassi out of mangoes. I went to the market which was flooded with mangoes. So, why not a mango Lassi! It is thirst quenching and a big relief on a hot Summer Day. Hope you like it!

    Splenda works well in Lassi instead of sugar. There's enough real sugar in the mangoes to make it taste right.

    Traditionally people use sugar in India but you could use anything :)
