This simple to make fruit “smoothie” uses yogurt as the base instead of milk, but has all the flavor you expect from a mango-infused treat. This lassi, traditionally an Indian yogurt-based beverage, uses fresh mango and banana to create the perfect dessert drink.

For a closer look at this recipe, see our 90 Seconds in the Kitchen series, where Chef Cari prepares this smoothie to perfection and dishes out all the tips you’ll need to create your own lassi masterpiece.

Lassi is a blend of yogurt, water, spices and sometimes fruit, but our version uses ice to create a perfect summertime smoothie.
