Dairy Free Mango + Pistachio Lassi


I love Indian food.  


One of the things I look for immediately when handed a menu at an Indian food restaurant is a mango lassi.  They are so refreshing!  Like a shake, but not really.  Like juice, but, better.  Sweet, but, not overly so.


I finally decided to try and make my own, and put my own little twist on it.  And, I have to say, it was sooooo good!  


I decided to go non-dairy, and also to allow the sweetness of the yogurt (which was already sweetened with cane sugar) to replace most of the added sugar.  I did add a tiny bit of dark sugar, and also some pistachios.  


It really was delicious and I hope you will give it a try!
