Mango Lassi

Lassi is a traditional Indian drink made with yogurt and can either be sweet (with sugar added) or savory (flavored with spices). Mango Lassi is one of the more popularlassi drink and can be made with or without sugar addition depending on how sweet the mango used in the drinks are. Most people serve their lassi over ice but I think it dilutes the flavor. Personally, I like mine chilled before serving and usually use glasses that have been chilled in the refrigerator of freezer for a few minutes. Be careful though as it may cause the glass to shatter if left in the freezer for a long time.


1 cup cube ripe mango
1 1/2 cups plain yogurt
1/2 cup to 1 cup of milk
sugar, according to taste
ground cardamon or chopped pistachio for topping

1. In a blender, mix mango, sugar and about 1/4 cup mulk. Mix until it has been pureed.

2. Add yogurt and milk. Blend until well combined and smooth.

3. Taste and adjust according to desired sweetness.

4. Chill before serving.

5. Prior to serving, transfer to glasses and top with cardamon or chopped pistachio.
