Mango Passion Fruit Lassi
Yields
4 servings

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.
