This is my take on a traditional Indian drink: a mango lassi. Creamy, light, fruity – this better-than-a-smoothie concoction is absolutely delicious and I make it every time I find ripe mangoes at a good price. It probably goes without saying that my kids (and husband) slurp this up like it is nobody’s business.

    Hi Mel,
    Can we use choose to not use strawberries. I absolutely despise them when mixed in drinks!

  9. Mel says:

    Tanya – sure, but I’d probably add another mango to the mix to make up for the lack of strawberries.
