If you are unfamiliar with lassis, they are a traditional Indian yogurt-based beverage designed to refresh and to cool you down. They can be served any time of day or in the evening. This is a sweet lassi which also contains rose water an ingredient used in beverages and desserts in India. If you don’t have rose water, don’t worry; it’s not essential.
2 cups diced ripe mango
1 1/2 cups plain yogurt or coconut yogurt
1/2 cup whole milk, nut milk, or coconut milk
3 tablespoons sweetener (I used dark agave nectar)
1 teaspoon rose water, or to taste
1/2 teaspoon Rain’s Choice pure Vanilla Extract preferably Tahitian
Pinch kosher salt
Put all ingredients into a blender or food processor and blend until smooth.
If you want the lassi ice-cold, you can either freeze the mango slices before making the beverage, or add a few ice cubes to the blender.
