What Is Lassi?

Lassi (pronounced [ləsiː]) is a popular, traditional, yogurt-based drink that originated in India. Indian Lassi is a blend of yogurt, water, spices and sometimes fruit.

With such a broad definition, there are many different variations of Lassi, but the Indian Mango Lassi is one of the most popular variants.

It probably doesn’t hurt that mangoes are my favorite fruit OF ALL TIME, but there’s just something that I LOVE about the creamy combination of sweet mangoes and tangy yogurt.

This blended Indian mango drink is cool and refreshing; just what you need when wolfing down some richly spiced Indian food!

Fresh Mango vs. Frozen Mangoes vs. Canned mango Pulp

If you are craving mango, but don’t want to spend an hour de-stoning fresh mangoes or defrosting frozen mango then canned mango can be a convenient option. However, there is one major drawback to canned mango – the flavor of canned mango pulp pales in comparison to both fresh and frozen mango. For best results when making mango lassi, use fresh mangoes or frozen mango rather than canned mango if possible!

What Goes in a Lassi Mango Recipe?

A delicious and refreshing drink, Mango Lassi is made with fresh yogurt or curd, milk ,sweet mango slices (depending on preference) as well as a hint of cinnamon and optionally, ground cardamom. For those who love their drinks creamy- richness punctuated by the slightest bit spicy; we recommend adding some cream into this mixture!

If you want to make vegan mango lassi, use coconut milk instead of whole milk and plain unsweetened coconut yogurt!

A simple but rich tasting variation can be had at any time during Indian summers – if not more often than that!

  2. Absolutely no cinnamon in a Mango lassi that’s served in Indian restaurants. You should remove that from your list of ingredients. Cardamom yes, NO cinnamon.

    Great recipe. Easy to make and tastes as good as the $5 in the indian restaurants. I deleted the sugar and just left it out as the natural sweetness of the mango was more than enough.

    1. Hi Nana, you can leave the sugar out or you can add honey, maple syrup or agave to taste. Some people will blend in a little banana to add sweetness, but it also adds in some banana flavor.
