Mango and Strawberry Lassi

This is a cool and refreshing drink for summer. I love any kind of lassi. So come summer and I make this every other day as I drink this as part of my lunch. I just love the combination of yogurt, ripe mango, Cardamom and Rose water with some sugar. But this time I thought that if I am mixing strawberries with mango, the Rose water and Cardamom might not go well with it, so I used Orange Blossom water instead of rose water and cardamom.
For anyone who doesn't know what Lassi is, it is an Indian yogurt drink (like smoothie). Plain lassi is made of yogurt, cardamom and sugar blended. To make different lassis you can add different fruits to the basic yogurt lassi while blending.

1 ripe mango peeled and chopped
5-6 strawberries
2 cups yogurt
sugar to taste
1 tbsp orange blossom water.

Blend everything in the blender. Serve chilled.

What I did was I made two separate lassi, one with mango and one with strawberry and then poured them one after another in the serving glass.
