Mango Lassi is a delicious, slightly sweet drink that goes very well with a spicy curry. It should be about the thickness of a glass of buttermilk and is very cooling. Feel free to substitute other fruits for the mango, strawberry and banana mixed together is tasty.
3 cups mango pulp
1 cup yogurt
sugar to taste (or Splenda) (optional)
3 cups cold water or lemon-lime soda
Place the mango pulp in a blender with the yogurt and blend until smooth. Taste and add sweetening to taste. Add the water or lemon-lime soda and blend again. Taste again for sweetness. The mango by itself might make it sweet enough. This is delicious with the spicy curries.
Variations: use other fruits as they are available. Strawberries and bananas mixed are especially good.
