Mango Lassi

It's been hot of late and yesterday was very hot. The kind of day when you don't feel like eating much.  Late afternoon I made this and took myself off to a shady spot with a book.  

Lassi is a yoghurt based drink popular in India. It's hard for me to say the word as my Scottish origins change it to a very broad "lassie" which changes its meaning entirely. That aside, it's cool, comforting and silky rich and there's not much exertion required. Just right for summer.

Mango Lassi

Serves 1

1/4 cup Greek or plain yoghurt
1/4 cup freshly squeezed orange juice
1/2 fresh mango, skin removed and cut into cubes
2 large ice cubes

Place all the ingredients in a blender and whizz until all combined.  Pour into a glass to serve. 

I like the thickness of the drink but you can add a little extra orange juice or milk if you prefer.

  1. Ok, so you may not have a salad post up your sleeve, but this has fruit and it has flowers - it's almost there :-) Beautifully cool and refreshing - the perfect summer drink, isn't it, which I guess is why Indians drink it.
