When I used to live with my parents, I had free access to their food processor and blender and would make Mango-Ginger Lassis on a regular basis. My tiny apartment kitchen has no space for a blender and can barely hold the new Cuisinart I just purchased. So needless to say, I really missed these Lassis since I couldn't make them at home. To break in my new Cuisinart, I decided that it was time to revisit this delicious drink. If you have a blender, please use that instead of your food processor but I'm using my Cuisinart because that's all I got.
6-8 ice cubes
2 small containers of plain low-fat yogurt
1 2-inch piece of ginger, peeled and grated
2 tablespoons of honey
Peel and grate your ginger. Remove the meat from the mango.
In your blender or food processor, add the ice cubes and pulse until they are somewhat crushed. Do this to get the drink started so that you don't end up with chunks of ice in your Lassi.
To your blender or food processor, add the grated ginger, mango, yogurt and honey and pulse until smooth. Serve immediately.
It's the perfect combination of sweet and spicy!
