As the weather gets colder, the southern hemisphere is just starting to warm up! This mango yogurt shake is one of the drinks the people in New Zealand are sipping to stay cool.
In the southern hemisphere, seasons are in reverse to the northern hemisphere. With summer falling in December, while the rest of the world is bundling up by the fireplace for their winter Xmas holiday, everyone in New Zealand is surfing, playing sports and having the outdoor BBQ parties.
Hosting a party and looking for fun non-alcohol drinks to serve? Make this mango lassi your “Signature drink”. Kid-friendly too!
Mango lassi is an unusual and excellent mix of flavors – mango pulp and natural yogurt. It is interestingly exotic but in no way off-putting. It is essentially a yogurt based mango milkshake that is flavorful, creamy and absolutely heavenly!

- 500 g canned mango pulp
- a pinch of salt optional
- ice cream optional
- Put mango, yogurt, salt into a blender and blend for 2 minutes.
- Serve chilled with a scoop of vanilla or mango ice cream on top, drizzle with some mango pulp.
