Mango Lassi

Lassi(Pronounce Lah-see) is popular yogurt based drink which is almost like smoothie texture originated in the northern part of india.  Traditionally lassi is prepared by blending yogurt with salt and some spices. There is sweeter version of lassi as well but I like to make mango lassi often whenever I get fresh mangoes. Lassi is served chilled and its such a refreshing drink in hot summer days. My mom would make simple sweet version of lassi sometimes with nuts like pistachios, cashews and almonds.  It’s such an easy and quick drink to put together and enjoy without adding any calories.
