A Lassi is yogurt based drink made in India. It’s very refreshing on a summer day or perfect as a morning smoothie. If you can find Ataulfo mangoes – use them – they are much less fibrous then a regular mango. If you use a regular mango and it’s stringy, puree and strain the pulp.
Scoop out the pulp from the passion fruit. Strain the pulp through a sieve into a small bowl. Discard the seeds. Squeeze out the juice from the ginger into the passion fruit. (Put the ginger on a spoon and place another spoon on top. Apply pressure on the ginger and squeeze out the juice) Discard the ginger pulp.
Add chopped mango, passion fruit pulp, yogurt, milk, honey, lime juice and ice to a stand blender. Blend mixture on high until smooth and frothy.
Serve lassi in tall chilled glasses with a pinch of cardamom on top. Garnish each glass with a cape gooseberry if desired. Makes about 5 cups.
