Tropical lassi

Sometimes, to get through the long winter months, you need a taste of summer. This frothy drink, with its tropical tones of coconut and mango, delivers. I made a few tweaks to the original recipe to lower the calories without sacrificing flavour. I reduced the amount of coconut milk from 400mL to 200mL, filling in with orange-peach-mango juice (any variation would do), used light coconut milk and low-fat yogurt, and reduced the amount of sugar. Even better is if you have fresh fruit on hand!

Blend 200 mL light coconut milk, 200 mL orange-peach-mango juice, 3/4 cup light natural yogurt, juice from 1 lime, 2 1/2 T caster sugar and 6 ice cubes in a blender until smooth and creamy. Garnish with a lime slice. Makes enough for 2 large glasses.
