Mango Lassi

Mango Lassi

Summer is here and so are MANGOES and that too in abundance. True to its name – KING OF FRUITS; mango is juicy, tasty, sweet and super delicious! It has various forms and flavors from bitter to tarty and sweet to very very sweet. Can be enjoyed as is or in savory and sweet dishes. Today’s recipe is a very popular and everyone’s favorite – Mango Lassi.

Delicious mango lassi is prepared with yogurt and sweet mango pulp. It’s pretty close to mango smoothie which follows the same method leaving out the essence and cardamom and substituting with vanilla flavor. Mangoes I used were very sweet so I kept my sugar on the low side. Looking for a healthy option substitute honey for sugar. If you find it too thick dilute it with more milk or cream and adjust accordingly to one’s liking.

Mango Lassi

I flavor my mango lassi with different essence alternating between rose water, kewra and mango essence. I usually leave out on cardamom because of it’s strong flavor that conflicts with whatever essence I am adding. Add ice cubes and enjoy this very tasty and full of nutrients mango drink. Add mango chunks to give it a texture.

This summer enjoy this rich, creamy and pleasantly flavored sweet Mango lassi that is very refreshing!! During summer break it’s a must have for my kids.  🙂
