Mango Lassi, Picture by ©Chitrangadasharan

Mango Lassi is perhaps the best Summer drink, for the hot summer in India.

The flavour and aroma of the ripe mangoes, combined with homemade curd or yogurt can be prepared in less than 5 minutes.

No need to add sugar, as the mangoes are sweet enough. But, if you are making it for the kids, you can add a little bit of sugar or honey.

You can also add saffron or cardamom powder for added flavour.

For the best fruit based smoothies, always go for fresh fruits.

Wash and peel the mangoes, and purée them in a blender.

Add curd and 3 to 4 ice cubes and blend again.

Usually the mango pulp and curd can be taken in equal quantity.

1 cup mango pulp + 1 cup curd

But, you can have your choice, whether to increase the mango pulp, or increase the amount of curd, according to the person, for whom you are making this delicious and nutritious drink.
