    Whether we mix it with cucumber and mint for a quick yogurt sauce or stir it into a quick fruit salad, I love using plain yogurt to add acidity and creaminess to balance dishes.

    We happened to have ripe mangos sitting around recently so I decided to make mango lassis for my boys to try. Traditionally served in Indian restaurants to balance the spicy cuisine, plain yogurt is a great way to beat the heat because it literally coats your tongue. Water, on the other hand, simply spreads the heat throughout the mouth only prolonging the agony of overly spicy food.

    To make this mango lassi, you simply blend together juicy mango cubes with plain, unsweetened yogurt, ground cardamom, water and ice. If you don’t have cardamom on hand, a little cinnamon or nutmeg works great too.

    While mango is the traditional fruit used for a lassi, I love using this recipe with ripe peaches and nectarines as well. Heck, any fruit would be great, to be honest.
