Sweet Mango Lassi

I haven't found a good Indian resturant in Phoenix (any suggestions?), but at least now I can make my own mango lassis.

I guarantee that even if you think you don't like yogurt you will love this shake. Combined with mangoes and blended until frothy, lassi is always refreshing, not just at mealtime. The bubbly froth subsides when lassi stands awhile, so whip it again in the blender or whisk it just before serving.

3 cups yogurt
1 cup mango purée, fresh or canned Indian Alphonso mango purée I just cut up a mango and blend it
1/2 cup sugar
1 tray ice cubes

Put all the ingredients in an electric blender or food processor and blend until the ice is crushed and the liquid is frothy. Serve immediately in tall glasses. (The drink will keep, covered, for up to 3 days in the refrigerator. Whip again before serving.) Makes 4 servings.
