Mango Lassi

Mango Lassi is an exotic take on the classic Lassi – a yogurt or buttermilk-based beverage from the Punjab, and said to be an antidote for extreme heat. This version adds the sweet tang of mangoes making it a rich, satisfying summer beverage. Mango Lassi is full of antioxidants, vitamins, calcium and potassium, and makes a great post-workout drink.
