Definitely easy to make and absolutely delicious in my opinion, the mango lassi is one of the most popular drinks in India. The mango lassi is a mix of ingredients easy to find but of extreme importance to Indian culture if we think for example that the mango is the fruit with which we pay homage to the gods and represents fertility and this is declined in various ways, mostly symbolic. If you think you are absolutely right but a smoothie to make a difference is the spice but it is strict NO to using ice to make cool lassi otherwise it loses all its flavour.
In India, where the ayran is called lassi, there are many preparations refined with native spices and recipes very diverse: they can be sweet, with fruit, extract of cannabis and other products, even if the base is exactly that of ayran turkish style. Usually the ayran is served very cold to accompany grilled meat dishes or rice . It is considered the ideal drink to counteract the burning sensation date from very spicy foods.
