My Mango Lassi

Mango Lassi - the best smoothie ever and so good for you!

I think I’ve been making Mango Lassis since the first time I ate at an Indian restaurant! What, we need a recipe? Maybe not, but here’s how I make mine.

I also “googled.” A lot. Because I wanted to make sure I wasn’t missing anything. And I found out I’ve been making them “wrong”. forever, lol!

First, the little greenish, reddish ones aren’t the best mangos to use, but what are ya gonna do? I’ll just be making do, but canned or frozen pulp is supposed to be the way to go if you can’t get great mangos. You can pick it up at an Asian Market.

Next, I found out that I don’t put enough stuff in mine! Rosewater, cardamom, saffron, pureed fruit, sugar and salt can all go in a Lassi; those are just a few of the possibilities. I just use a little finely ground cardamom and call it a day. But if you want to go creative, there’s a whole world of possibilities.

Still, this makes a nice, available and very delicious Lassi. You might have to “jiggle” the recipe just a bit. Mangos can vary in consistency, as can yogurt, as can your personal taste. I’d love to hear how you make yours!! 🙂 Mangoes do go on sale from time to time and are always lower in season. Don’t waste the skins – use them in Spa Water!
