One of my favorite types of cooking is Indian. I absolutely love it! A few weeks ago some friends invited us over for an Indian meal. We tried Mango Lassi as an appetizer, and I enjoyed it so much I wanted to make it again.

Lassi is a traditional South Asian beverage, originally from Punjab, made by blending yogurt with water, salt, and spices until frothy. It is normally enjoyed chilled as a hot-weather refreshment, or as an excellent cooling agent for a fiery curry. In India both the sweet and the savoury versions are common.

I decided to make the sweeter version again. The recipe below could be made with fresh or tinned fruit, I actually made it with tinned mangos on this occasion.
