Mango Lassi

Mango Lassi is a delicious combination of mangoes and yogurt that is cool and soothing.  It is wonderful on hot summer days or as a compliment to spicy meals.  Mango Lassi has become popular in Indian restaurants.

Ingredients: (Serves 3 to 4)

  • 2 cups ripe mangoes peeled and chopped
  • 1 cup yogurt
  • 1/2 cup milk
  • 3 tablespoons sugar (Adjust to taste)
  • 1/8 teaspoon cardamom powder
  • 1 tablespoon chopped mint leaves (Optional)
  • 3 cups crushed ice or ice cubes, use as needed

Method

  • Blend the mangoes, yogurt, milk and 2 tablespoons of sugar.  Adjust sugar according to taste.  Sugar amount will depend on the sweetness or sourness of the mango and yogurt
  • Add ice and cardamom powder and blend again.  Add water to adjust consistency to your liking as the best Lassi is slush-like.
  • Pour in tall glass and garnish with mint leaf.

Tips

  1. Use ripe mangoes that have the least amount of fiber.
  2. My personal favorite Lassi is slush-like in consistency, almost like an Icee!
