Mango Lassi

Mango Lassi is an Indian drink which is full of flavor, freshness and energy. Mango is also known as “King of Fruits” in South Asia because Mangoes found here are very sweet and they have a different taste. They are different than Australian mangoes, Mexican mangoes and Thai Mangoes. In Pakistan, Mangoes from the city of Multan are very famous for their taste and sweetness.
