    I used really ripe bananas (totally black skins) in this recipe but really liked the look of the "dirty mango" lassi you also have listed.

    I did 4 bananas worth and added a couple of shots of spiced rum, in all seriousness it blew my guests away. You should try it and let me know what you think Hari :)
