Mango Lassi

Sayre Van Young


  • 2 cups lemon-flavored or plain yogurt
  • 1 cup ice cold water
  • 3 tablespoons sugar
  • 2 teaspoons fresh lemon or lime juice
  • 6 ice cubes
  • 6 sprigs fresh mint

This is the most traditional of all hot Indian summer thirst quenchers. It can be drunk on its own or as an accompaniment to a spicy Indian meal.

Adapted from "A Reader's Cookbook" by Judith Choate.


Combine the yogurt with the water, sugar, and citrus juice in a blender jar. Add the ice cubes and process until the ice is crushed and the mixture is whipped and frothy. Pour into chilled glasses and garnish each with a mint sprig.
