Mango Lassi
Mango Lassi Brave News Pictures/Gregg Lowe

Lassi is a blended drink that is at once tart and refreshing. Though most Indian home cooks make theirs thin and savory, many restaurants offer this sweeter version.

Makes 8 servings

2 cups plain, unsweetened yogurt

1 cup milk

3 cups fresh or frozen mango, diced

1 teaspoon cardamom seeds

1 to 3 cups crushed ice (as needed)

2 to 3 tablespoons granulated or raw cane sugar, such as Sucanat, or agave nectar

8 mint leaves for garnish

1 teaspoon ground pistachios for garnish

1. In a powerful blender such as a Vitamix, combine the yogurt, milk, mango, cardamom seed, ice and sugar. Process on high for 2 to 3 minutes, until completely smooth and slightly frothy.

2. Divide between 8 glasses and garnish each with a mint leaf and a pinch of the pistachios. Serve immediately.

Note: You can also make this lassi an “adult” drink by adding 2 to 3 ounces of vodka or rum to the blender. Vegan: Substitute soy or coconut yogurt and milk alternatives.
