This mango lassi is so refreshing and energising. Mango's are delicious fresh, and when in season, have the most amazing sweet flavour - they're divine eaten fresh, in salads, as a salsa paired with avocado and coriander, in smoothies or in a drink like this. If you enjoy these flavours, when mangoes are in season, slice them up as shown in the video and freeze them to enjoy all year round.
