I’ve been dreaming of mango lassi for some time now. Mango lassi was something I first discovered during my college years in the US and I haven’t had it since returning to Trinidad seven years ago. This rich cool, slightly tart, beverage is the perfect complement to spicy, fiery cuisines and is also hearty (and healthy) enough to be a satisfying shake all on its own.
When our mango bounty began to wind down in October I thought I would use some over-ripe fruits that we had on hand to try making this nostalgic treat for myself. I combined and tweaked several online recipes until I came up with a combination that reminded me of the ones I had ‘back in the day’.
