After learning what a riotous combination fruits and yoghurt make together, I’ve been in love with all things fruit + yoghurt (cherry frozen yoghurt coming up!) With Alphonso mangoes aplenty, I’ve been making a lot of mango lassi through the summer and can’t seem to get enough of it.
If you can get your hands on Alphonso mangoes, you really should. Rich, pulpy and smooth as butter these mangoes are bursting with flavour. Blend it with a little sugar and yoghurt and you’ve made yourself the perfect summer drink!
Grandma says the ginger added to the lassi aids digest the mango, but I love the spicy dimension it adds to the sweet mango lassi.
