Mango Lassi

Mango Lassi

Mango lassi is a healthy Indian yogurt-based fruit drink. One of the best beverages for the hot summer to cool the body.

You can use different varieties of mangoes.

 

At the moment we are really spoilt of this juicy, tropical fruit. And we enjoy it!!!

The only thing, what I have to do is, to jump out of our Land Rover at the campsite in Nkhata Bay (Malawi).

Take the mangoes from the next branch,
wash, peel, cut and blend it, mix this tropical fruit with the other ingredients and pour into chilled glasses.
What a refreshing delight!!!!!!!!!!!
