A lassi is an Indian smoothie made with yogurt, sometimes offered as an aperitif or as a "side" to calm down a fiery meal. Thanks to a ripe mango and orange-flower water, this version is sweet and fragrant. It's perfect for an afternoon refresher or an after-dinner treat. From EatingWell.com (Eating Well Summer 2003)

Wonderful refreshing smoothie! Like Rita, I used frozen peaches, and I did use the optional orange flower water. Wouldn't omit it, it makes the lassi so special. Thanks for sharing :)
