Mango Lassi

Creamy Mango Lassi is easy to make at home with a few simple ingredients. I love making this lassi, especially during summers when sweet mangoes are in season. If you enjoy having mango lassi at Indian restaurants, you would love this homemade version just as much.

All you need is 10 minutes to make this.

Mangoes are delicious and more than half of the Indians are obsessed with them. They are the prime reason why so many people in India look forward to summers otherwise there’s nothing to look forward to 100 f degrees weather! Sarvesh adores mangoes and every year he patiently waits for the Indian mangoes to arrive here in the US.

This drink is always on the menu of Indian restaurants here and if you have always wondered how to make it at home, then let me tell you, it’s fairly simple and easy. You need basic ingredients and just 10 minutes to make mango lassi at home.

What Is Mango Lassi

In the Indian subcontinent “Lassi” refers to any yogurt-based drink. The popular ones are sweet lassi which is sweetened with sugar and salty lassi which has salt and other spices in it.

Mango Lassi is another popular version that has sweet mangoes blended with yogurt.

For this mango lassi recipe, I have used mangoes, yogurt, milk, sugar, and cardamom.

A lot of times lassi is made with “yogurt only”, traditionally that’s how it was made. But I like to add little milk to my lassi since I don’t like it super thick. You can use all yogurt if you aren’t a fan of adding milk to your lassi.

You may also add saffron or a splash of rose water for extra flavor but that is optional.

It’s thick, sweet, and creamy and one of the best ways to enjoy mangoes.

Mago lassi recipe

Ingredients:

2 ripe mangoes, peeled and chopped

1 cup plain yogurt

1/2 cup milk

4-6 tablespoons sugar (adjust to taste)

1/2 teaspoon cardamom powder (optional)

A few saffron strands (optional)

Ice cubes (optional)

Chopped nuts or mint leaves for garnish (optional)

Instructions:

Prepare the mangoes by peeling and chopping them into small pieces. Remove the seeds if there are any.

In a blender, add the chopped mangoes, plain yogurt, milk, sugar, and cardamom powder (if using).

Blend the mixture until smooth and creamy. Taste and adjust the sweetness if needed by adding more sugar.

If you’re using saffron strands, you can soak them in a tablespoon of warm milk for a few minutes until they release their color and aroma. Then add this saffron-infused milk to the blender and blend again for a richer flavor and color.

If you prefer a thicker lassi, you can add a few ice cubes to the blender and blend until they are completely crushed and incorporated into the mixture.

Once everything is well blended and smooth, pour the mango lassi into serving glasses.

Garnish each glass with chopped nuts or a few mint leaves for a decorative touch.

Serve chilled and enjoy your refreshing restaurant-style mango lassi.
