Mango Lassi

The lassi is a traditional Punjabi yogurt based drink.  It is made by blending yogurt with water or milk and Indian spices.  The traditional lassi is a savory drink sometimes flavored with ground roasted cumin (salted lassi).  The sweet lassi is blended with sugar or fruits instead of spices.  In Dharmic religions, yogurt sweetened with honey is used while performing religious rituals.  When turmeric powder is mixed into a lassi it is used as a remedy for gastroenteritis. 

The mango lassi is made from yogurt, milk or water and mango pulp.  It may be made with or without additional sugar.  It is served in a tall glass with a straw and often with ground pistachio nuts sprinkled on top.

1 Ounce Ground Pistachios
