Try this simple, fresh, Indian recipe for a smoothie-like drink called a Mango Lassi. This is one version, but there are ways to experiment with it. Get the freshest, sweetest mangoes you can find for the best lassi.
Mango Lassi ingredients. You can add water to adjust the consistency.
Here’s the lassi with a little garnish. Beautiful, fresh and filling for a summer party.
Yields 2 (8 ounces each)
- 2 mangos
- 2/3 cup plain yogurt
- 2 – 3 tablespoons sugar
- 1/2 – 1 cup cold water
- Ground cardamom and/or nutmeg
- Garnish with mint and/or raspberry
Carefully remove mango flesh from the skin. You can do this by cutting the mango in half along each side of the pit. You will have 2 halves with most of the fruit. Cut the remaining fruit carefully off the pit. Scoop flesh out with a spoon and place in blender.
Discard the skin and pit.
Blend mango, yogurt, sugar and water until smooth. Adjust sugar, yogurt and water to taste. Add water to make a thinner lassi.
You can blend in a few ice cubes too and even add ground cardamom in the blender.
Garnish if desired with optional garnishes.
ENJOY on a warm summer day. 😋
*You can alternatively use honey in place of the sugar.
