Mango Lassi is a refreshing and beloved beverage that originates from the Indian subcontinent. Traditionally, it is made by blending ripe mangoes with yogurt, sugar, and spices, creating a lusciously smooth and flavorful drink. This delightful concoction has roots in Indian culinary traditions, where it serves as a cooling and sweet counterpart to spicy dishes.
