Lassi is a popular yogurt-based drink in India, Pakistan, Bangladesh etc..It is most popular in street stalls and in restaurants..Its a perfect drink to beat summer heat..There are two types of Lassi: Savoury and Sweet..Savoury lassi consists of yogurt blended with salt, chillies and other spices, while Sweet lassi is blended with yogurt,sugar and sometimes fruits too..As it is a mango season in India and Pakistan, today I am sharing  a mango based lassi - Mango Yogurt smootie..I shared another mango based dessert earlier, i.e Mango Cheesecake...Do select a fresh ripe and sweet mango for making this lassi..This tastes delicious when served chilled..Off to the recipe..
