Mango Lassi recipe from Idea Land blog(Used in this project: Tall Oval Tags and Large Oval Tags in Henna style.)

During the hot days of summer, I often crave a cold beverage to help cool me down. This year, after ordering a mango lassi from a local Indian restaurant, I discovered how easy and tasty this beverage is to make at home. It is as rich and creamy as a milkshake, but a lot healthier for you, and the cardamom gives it a surprisingly delicious, cooling aftertaste that lingers long after the beverage is gone.

You can make this drink according to the recipe to serve two, or you can double the recipe in the same blender for a group of four. If you want to crank up the cold, add a cup of ice to the blender and puree until smooth. For parties, you can make a batch or two beforehand, and store it in the refrigerator for up to 24 hours so you’re prepared when your guests arrive.

To serve my mango lassi, I distributed it in pint-sized jars, and decorated them with sunburst colored personalized tags in the style Henna.
