Mango Lassi Recipe

Mango Lassi

Mango Lassi

Lassi is a popular Indian drink prepared with yogurt and flavoured with spices or mixed with fruit to make a refreshing, cooling drink. For mango lassi mango puree, yogurt, milk, sugar, saffron and cardamom are blended together. Delightfully refreshing and bursting with flavour- this recipe is a perfect accompaniment to any meal or just on its own.

When it’s mango season, I prepare lassi very often and usually use Alfonso mango, but any other sweet fragrant mango works too. I would highly recommend using any ripe Indian mango as they are fragrant and deliciously sweet making a wonderful lassi or you can use canned puree.

The combination of mango, yogurt and milk means this drink is a delicious blend of nutrients. Mangoes are rich in fibre, vitamins (especially A and C) and minerals along with nutritious yogurt and milk.

1 tablespoon sugar

Put the mango pulp, yogurt, milk, ice cubes, sugar, saffron and cardamom powder in a food processor and blitz. Taste to adjust the sugar and cardamom flavour, then pour into glasses and serve.

Tips & Variations

  1. I have used alphonso mangoes in this recipe. Any sweet ripe mango works for this recipe.
  2. I would recommend using plain yogurt for mango lassi. If you are using Greek yogurt, then I would recommend use slightly less yogurt and increase the quantity of milk since Greek Yogurt is so thick.
  3. I have used brown sugar in this recipe, but you can use honey, or any other sweetener.
