Chilled Mango-Yogurt Soup


This simplified version of the Indian Mango Lassie comes together in your Viking blender in seconds. It is the perfect way to end a spicy Indian meal. Frozen mango chunks have become popular smoothie additions, making them available at almost every supermarket. When fresh mangos are in season you can substitute three cups of peeled and diced mango for the bag of frozen mango chunks.

To make this dessert extra special you can place a scoop of coconut sorbet in each glass and garnish with chopped fresh mango.
