The mango lassi is a luxurious milkshake or smoothie based on yogurt. At Indian restaurants, they are a favourite dessert drink, but they are easy to prepare at home.
You can use either canned mango pulp or cubed fresh or frozen mango. Fresh mangoes should be ripe and sweet.
Mangos are packed with vitamins A and C, folate, copper, and potassium, while yogurt and milk contain protein, calcium, phosphorus, and vitamin B2. The egg provides extra protein, choline, and selenium.
