Personally, I find the canned Indian mango pulp is wonderful for making the lassi.
Yogurt. Plain yogurt is the right choice for this mango recipe with mango pulp. As the flavored yogurt contradicts the real mango flavor and ends up as fusion lassi. However, feel free to use plain yogurt of any type like nonfat, skimmed, or full-fat yogurt.
Milk. Used to dilute the lassi, you may use low fat, whole fat, or partly skimmed milk. For the rich creamy taste use whole milk.
Sugar. Regular sugar plays a subtle and enhances the mango flavor, however, you may use the natural sugars for healthy reasons. But make a note that, the end results may vary according to the sugar's original taste.
Saffron. An expensive ingredient, few strands makes each serving glass special and with rich flavors. But adding them is optional, I have added for garnishing.
