Mango Lassi Summer Drinks Recipe
As I mentioned in my Punjabi Lassi post lassi is most popular and filling drink during summer and for me any time of the year it's works.  Mango lassi is all time favorite whenever I go to Indian restaurant and if they serve mango lassi then without second thought the order goes to that but then the pity is we always don't get good mango lassi everywhere, some places sell such bad mango lassi that you would stop drinking it once for all but then these small hurdles doesn't effects me I still explore and try mango lassi and only avoid the places I know it's bad not good.  Thick, creamy lassi with full of mango flavors are to die for and a good mango lassi can be so satisfying.  
I always make mango lassi during mango season since I prefer to use ripen mango for lassi instead of using tinned pulp nor I like to use ice cubes as it's dilute the drink which I don't like so simple thing to do is use chilled mangoes and yogurt as to chill the lassi afterwards is difficult option ;) and same goes for milk or water.

Lot of people add milk or water in mango lassi I don't do that as I said I like thick, creamy lassi which I hope you can see from the pictures how thick these lassi are.  There is no rules over here you just do as you prefer.  These yummy lassi doesn't only help to quench the thirst but also added along a simple meal becomes a grant affair.
