Sweet and rich mango lassi, with mango, milk, yogurt, sugar and a dash of cardamom. I guarantee that even if you think you don’t like yogurt you will love this shake. Combined with mangoes and blended until frothy, lassi is always refreshing, not just at mealtime. The bubbly froth subsides when lassi stands awhile, so whip it again in the blender or whisk it just before serving.
Mango lassis, 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!
