From the Blender: Here, Lassi!

This tamarind and coconut-enhanced take on a traditional lassi is downright refreshing, a little tart with just the right amount of sweet and smooth.

Note: The coconut milk in this recipe is not from a can. Rather, it can be found in the refrigerated dairy section next to nut and soy milks.
