Heat got you down? Cold, refreshing mango lassi will perk you back up! This traditional drink from India (where they know a thing or two about beating the heat) is healthful and delicious — and our recipe, courtesy of Sanaa at Disney’s Animal Kingdom Park, is a snap to prepare.
2 cups ripe mango, chopped
Pinch of salt
1 cup chilled whole milk
1 cup whole-milk plain yogurt
2 to 3 teaspoons sugar, optional
1. If mango has stringy fibers, push through a nylon sieve with the back of a spoon. The remaining mango should not contain any stringy pulp. Refrigerate until cold.
2. Combine mango, pinch of salt, milk and yogurt in a blender and puree until smooth. Taste and add sugar to taste. If you would like the lassi a bit colder, add about eight ice cubes to the blender. Can be refrigerated up to 24 hours.
