Lassi recipes

Here are some Lassi recipes I've collected.
The comments are those of the original poster:

"Great Vegetarian Dishes" by Korma dasa:
Lassi (Serves 1)

1 c. plain yogurt ( I use fatfree I make myself)
                       1/4 c. cold water
                       3 ice cubes
                       2 tsp. sugar
                       1/4 tsp rose water (or more if you want  it's pretty potent)
 Mix together in a blender until ice cubes are almost gone.
 Top with finely chopped pistachio nuts.
                       You can add any kind of fruit for variety, but it tastes fine as is.
                       I find this absolutely light and delicious. I've also noticed that it helps clear up yeast infections    at least for me.

?1 package (about 12 oz) soft tofu ?2 cups rice milk (soy milk will do in a pinch) ?1 cup mango pulp or sliced ripe mango ?1/4 cup sugar (more or less according to taste) ?1/4 tsp. rosewater (optional) ?8-12 shelled pistachios (optional) 

Put tofu in blender. Blend until smooth. 

Add remaining ingredients and blend until smooth. For best results, grind the pistachios first.
