When it comes to summer, there is no fun without mangoes. In my hometown, we have a big mango tree in our backyard. In my childhood, me and my friends, we will climb that tree and pluck all mangoes, no matter whether they are raw or ripe. I just love those memories.. I must admit that I'm a good tree climber... :)
I bought a box of my sweetie mangoes from a Mexican grocery store. Lemme tell you guys my mom prepares excellent mango lassi. That's just perfect!! And what's unique is the hint of ginger in it.. This gives lassi a spicy flavor... Yes, ginger aids in digestion of mangoes.. but i like the gingery twist in my sweet mango lassi...
And when it comes to Alphonso mangoes, rich, pulpy and smooth as butter... they are bursting with flavor. Blend them with yogurt, little sugar and oh my!! you are with your perfect summer drink!!!
2 large Alphonso mango, cut into small cubes
1 cup yogurt
3 tbsp Sugar or as per taste
1/2 cup Milk, if required
1 tsp ground ginger
2-3 ice cubes
If you don't have fresh mangoes, substitute with 1 cup canned mangoes and if using sweetened mango pulp, reduce the amount of sugar.
Combine all the ingredients, except milk, in the blender. Blend well. Adjust the ingredients as per the taste.
Pour the milk, little by little, until you reach the desired consistency.
Serve garnished with nuts or mango slices.
