Mango lassi is a sweet cold drink that originated in India. By mixing mango pulp with yogurt, cream, or ice cream, you get a thick and delicious drink much like the Western world's smoothie.

To make a baby version of this, simply puree well and make sure all the pulp is gone. It is suggested that babies who are eight months and older try this fruit because of allergies to the skin of the fruit. The allergies are usually not life threatening, but may appear around the mouth or buttocks as a rash. To prevent this, wash the skin thoroughly before cutting the mango.

When ripe, mangoes have a soft pulpy texture and taste sweet. They have a unique fragrance and when pressed, the skin will give in to the pressure. Mangoes are loaded with vitamins A, B6, C, E, and K.

1) Wash the mango's skin and peel. Cut up one mango.
2) Add 2 cups of yogurt.
3) Blend together. Strain if necessary.

Another yummy recipe! I love mango lassis. I like that your recipes are also informative (i.e., talk about the nutritional value for baby and also how to best make it so it's safe for baby to eat).
