Mango Lassi

We finally made Mango Lassis at home!!  We tried them once, years ago, but our mangos weren't good and the whole drink was chalky.  These are so easy to make; I don't know if we'll order them in Indian restaurants anymore!  I got this recipe from a friend and really enjoy how tasty and easy it is.  We've made this a few times- at first we used milk, as the original recipe states.  But the last time we made it, we used 16 oz. pure mango puree instead of the milk, and it was so good this way.  It's hard to get mango puree sometimes (we got this online; it was 100% mango puree), so one can use milk.  I also like using a bag of frozen mango chunks in this.  I love the texture of the finished product, we don't have to add ice cubes, and it's way easier!

from my friend J.R.
makes a lot- enough for our fam of 6

1 16-oz. bag frozen mango chunks*
500 grams (about 2 cups) plain Greek or European yogurt (full-fat)
16 ounces mango puree OR 1 cup milk (may need more milk to fully blend)
dash of cardamom powder
2 teaspoons sugar, optional (we didn't need when using mango puree)

1.  Blend all ingredients together in blender until smooth.

*If using fresh mango, may need to add a few ice cubes to blender to improve texture.
