Lassi’s are home to India as much as tea is and they are made from blending yoghurt with fruits preferably tropical fruits like mangos or pineapples.
I first got a recipe for this from Aarti’s show which you can find here.
I decided to make it my own by tweaking my red hot mango fruit drink and instead of the water i added natural unsweetend yoghurt.
1 ripe mango
1 glass of natural yoghurt
Juice from a fresh lime/lemon,fresh
1/2 a medium sized beetroot sliced into quarters.
1/2 red chilli powder.
Some drinking water
1.Peel mangoes and slice off the flesh aound the seed then cut it into cubes .
2Put these in ablender,then add the quartered beetroot,juice from the lemon(it prevents the beetroot from turning color).
3.Add some honey or syrup for taste,2 pinches of red chilli powder and yoghurt to make it easier to blend the mixture and pulse for 3-5 minutes till you get a smooth consistency
Add more yoghurt/water till you get the desired thickness.
4.Get 2 tall drinking glass,put some ice cubes and pour the drink.
