Mango and Kiwi Lassi with spinach

Vietnamese food

Lassi is a popular, traditional yogurt based drink from India, Pakistan, Sri lanka, and Bangladesh.   Mango lassi is the most popular drink at Indian restaurants.  The flavor and texture will vary depending on  more or less mango, yogurt, sugar, ice or milk  is used.  This combination of mango and kiwi lassi has a striking beautiful color but my daughter does not like kiwi lassi.

Mango lassi

1 large very ripe  mango. peeled and cut into small pieces
