Do you like mango lassis?

Our Favorite Videos

A favorite drink at Indian restaurants, they’re easy to make at home.

Lassis come in all kinds of flavors, some are salty, some are sweet, some have mint, some have fruit. A mango lassi is basically a yogurt based mango milkshake or smoothie.

You can use either canned mango pulp or cubed fresh or frozen mango. If you use fresh, you’ll want to use a ripe, sweet mango.

If your mango isn’t ripe enough it will be too tart and you’ll have to add more sugar or honey than you would like.

A little ground cardamom sprinkled on top is perfect!

Mango Lassi Recipe

  • Prep time: 10 minutes
  • Yield: Makes about 2 cups

Depending on how ripe and sweet your mango is, or if you are using canned and already sweetened mango pulp, you will need to add more or less honey or sugar to the lassi.

If you have cardamom pods, crush the pods to remove the seeds, then grind the seeds with a mortar and pestle.

Ingredients

  • 1 cup plain yogurt
  • 1/2 cup milk
  • 1 cup chopped very ripe mango (see how to peel and chop mango), frozen chopped mango, or a cup of canned mango pulp
  • 4 teaspoons honey or sugar, more or less to taste
  • A dash of ground cardamom (optional)
  • Ice (optional)

Method

Put mango, yogurt, milk, sugar and cardamom into a blender and blend for 2 minutes.

If you want a more milkshake consistency and it's a hot day, either blend in some ice as well or serve over ice cubes.

Sprinkle with a tiny pinch of ground cardamom to serve.

The lassi can be kept refrigerated for up to 24 hours.
