A ‘lassi’ is a yoghurt-based drink that’s ubiquitous across the Indian subcontinent. They are known to tame the heat of a spicy curry, so it’s worth giving one a go to tame an Aussie summer.

Makes 1

1 cup diced fresh mango, or frozen mango
1 cup plain non-fat yoghurt
½ cup low-fat milk
1 tablespoon white sugar (or more or less to taste)
Dash of cardamom or cinnamon

Put all ingredients into a blender and whizz until creamy and frothy. Serve well-chilled.


Feel free to substitute another stone fruit for the mango – peaches, pomegranates and berries all work well.
