How unique is this mango lassi recipe?

Minimal process. This mango lassi recipe with mango pulp involves no cooking or preparation. Combine all the ingredients, and it is ready. It's versatile; make it in advance or stir it before serving.
Mango pulp. The key ingredient, the good news, is that it is available in the canned version. Hence, stocking them in the pantry is not a difficult task. You can find them in the online stores or get them from your local Indian store.
I find the canned Indian mango pulp is terrific for making the lassi.
Yogurt. Plain yogurt is the right choice for this mango recipe with mango pulp, as the flavored yogurt contradicts the authentic mango flavor and ends up as a fusion lassi. However, use plain yogurt like nonfat, skimmed, or full-fat yogurt.
Milk. You may dilute the lassi using 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 natural sugars for healthy reasons. But note that the results may vary according to the sugar's original taste.
Saffron. An expensive ingredient, a few strands make each serving glass special and with rich flavors. But adding them is optional; I have added them for garnishing.

How to serve?
We love to have this cool mango along with food or as dessert. This authentic Indian mango lassi is good to serve with any spicy food, like,
- Nuts. Garnish mango pulp lassi with thinly sliced dried nuts for a crunchy taste.
- Cardamom powder. Delivers the original authentic taste of India. A little more, a quarter pinch of cardamom is suitable for a single serving of mango lassi with mango pulp.
