Mango Lassi

A very tasty and refreshing drink, Mango lassi is a very popular drink in India and a lot of Indian restaurants serve this.

This recipe makes a thick and delicious lassi. If you want it a little more thinner in consistency add 1 cup of milk instead of 1/2 cup. I used the can of mango pulp found in Indian grocery stores.

Serves 2


1 cup mango pulp ( available in tins in Indian grocery stores )
1/2 cup plain yogurt
1/2 - 1 cup milk ( use 1/2 cup if you want a thick shake, use 1 cup for a slightly thinner consistency ) ( I used 2% milk )
1 tbsp sugar ( optional )
1/8 tsp cardamom powder / elaichi powder

  • Place all the above mentioned ingredients in a mixer / blender and mix for 1 minute.
  • Pour it in some tall glasses and enjoy. If you like it chilled you can make this ahead of time and chill it in the fridge. I usually refrain from using ice cubes as it dilutes the taste of the lassi.
