I love Lassi! I though going vegan I would have to miss out. I am definitely going to appreciate making this in the summer

Mmmm, I can personally vouch for that drink, having grown up with mango lassis and rosewater lassis (and plain ones) back in Pakistan. Never tried it with soy yogurt or milk, though, so will definitely try that.

Just a suggestion: Try adding about a pinch to 1/4 teaspoon salt to your glass. Makes it taste even more authentic

I am so going to have to try this now that I'm in a place where mangoes are grown locally.
That is, if I can keep from eating the mangoes before they make it into the blender!

Just a note, you can also make your own rosewater by boiling rose petals and then straining the water after boiling rose petals in water for 10 minutes roughly. There are more exact websites, I just felt like mentioning this.

If you buy roses from the inside of a grocery store they will not have pesticides used on them because of their being near food but ask whoever works in the garden area anyway, just to be safe.

That is sadly, not usually the case in the US. Unless something is organic, commercial grocery stores are full of heavily sprayed produce that most people eat without a second thought.

That is why I added 'ask' I live in WA so I understand. I get most of my produce delivered from Terra Organics rather than buy them from the store. I get more variety that way anyway =D

If you are going to an Indian grocery store, you can also pick up canned mango pulp to save time/money.

Yep, the OP recipe sounds better, but I would do this a lot (and am very lazy). It was very easy: can of kesar mango pulp, fill the rest of the blender with yogurt, optional whatevers - sugar or honey or pre-ground cardamom or a little salt. Blend and voila!

I think the options are sort of the idea behind lassis: there's a yogurt base and you just add whatever taste you like.
