Maybe you haven’t had one of these before and are asking:

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. 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!

Frequently Asked Questions

Yes, this recipe is good for diabetics because the mangoes will help you avoid sugar. You can also lose weight using it as a meal replacement and heart healthy meal!

Lassi is a yogurt-like drink that has been around for centuries.

  1. Hi. I have tried fresh Australian mangos as well as mangos from peru. The issue I have is the yoghurt neutralises the mango taste, and the mango neutralises the yoghurt taste. I have also tried alphonso and kesar mango pulp with the same outcome. The best I can do is a faint taste at most. Any advice? Thanks.

    1. Hi Thopson,

      1/2 cup milk is 118 ml.
      1 cup plain, non-fat yogurt is 236 ml.
      1 cup diced mango is 236 ml.
      2 Tablespoons of sugar is 29.5 ml.

  2. Muy rica la receta y fácil de hacer. Le añadí cardamomo y polvoreé con canela . Gracias

    English Translation: The recipe is very rich and easy to make. I added cardamom and sprinkled with cinnamon. Thanks

  3. so great! i used 10oz of full-fat organic pasture-raised raw kefir (Organic Pastures), then added 2oz organic 100% grass-fed half & half (Organic Valley), and the juice of half a lime (to make it more tart!). mango is already sweet like candy, so no sugar added (2 TBS would be way over the top sweet). anyway, a fully organic dessert with no added sugar! it felt so much more luxurious than just eating a chopped up mango and drinking some kefir! won’t do it often since blending does decrease the healthiness of the mango, but for a more-or-less whole-food, unsweetened treat, this is awesome!

  4. Hi, the only thing your recipe is missing is the cardamom, it gives it the distinct flavor that you get when at an Indian restaurant.

  5. So excited to make these! I didn’t realize it was so simple. 🙂 Thanks for the recipe! Also – your glasses are so gorgeous, where did you get them?

  6. Personally I go for the more traditional cardamom powder. I’ll also skip the sugar if the mangos are ripe enough. I completely agree about the deliciousness factor. Frozen mangos work too if you don’t mind it being a bit icy – then the sugar is necessary. It’s my husband’s favorite drink. He would drink a gallon a day if I let him.

      1. Hi John, you can use 1/4 teaspoon of ground cardamom if you want to add that to this recipe.

        – Linda

    1. I just had this at a restaurant yesterday,so I’m excited to try your recipe. This did a great job of calming the heat of the spicy Indian food we had.

  7. I just love mango lassis and I don’t know why I’ve never made them at home before. So simple! Thanks for the recipe. I can’t wait to do it! Yeah!

  8. My husband makes this all the time! He could totally live on lassi! I’m excited to try it with cinnamon!
