A good friend of Ariel's once introduced the noble lassi to her as "India's milkshake." While this originally led her to expect something other than the creamy, frozen fruit puree that a lassi truly is, it also does the lassi a disservice-- the lassi needs no mimicry of other beverages to be delicious. It is what it is: a smooth and frozen blend of milk and other things that appeals to palates seeking a less intense sugarbomb than milkshakes and a subtler fruit experience than a smoothie. The lassi is refined. The lassi does not judge you for drinking other things. The lassi is patient. The lassi is subtle. The lassi knows its own quality. The lassi is salty sometimes, but not this time. :)
Cream yogurt, ice, and mango pulp!

I love Lassi Come Home. It really does smell (I almost wrote "taste") like a mango lassi -- so realistic! The dairy portion goes a little marshmallowy on me, but other than that, it's perfect. I wear it pretty often because it matches the mango body butter I use on my legs.
