If You’re Looking for the Perfect Mango Lassi – Look No Further!
Mango lassis may just become your favorite new drink, but before we get too far ahead, you may be asking yourself- what exactly is a lassi anyway?
What is a Lassi Drink?
A lassi is a traditional Indian drink made with a dahi (yogurt) base, spices, and oftentimes fruit. For centuries, this famous drink has been both a sweet and savory treat (depending on what ingredients are added), with growing popularity in the U.S. as well. A lassi is undeniably refreshing, making it the perfect beverage to pair with spicy foods or summertime meals.
Mango is the most popular flavor of lassi, although you may come across other variations like banana, pineapple, or coconut. Mango is actually the national fruit of India and is known to symbolize eternal love, wealth, and fertility.
