Mango Lassi

Mango Lassi was my favorite drink at the Aarey Booth in Mumbai! Chilled Mango Lassi in hot summer is just out of this world!
Lassi is a thick, chilled yogurt drink which could be sweetened by adding sugar and seasonal fruits. Although I had this recipe photographed before 3 months, I thought of waiting for fresh mango season to set in before I publish it! So yesterday I made a fresh, chilled batch with fresh, sweet, ripe mangoes.

Ingredients:
1 cup plain yogurt
1 cup Mango pulp or 2 large ripe Mangoes
3-4 tbsp. milk
1-2 tbsp. sugar (if needed)
  • Peel and chop ripe mangoes or use Kesar or Alphanso Mango Pulp
  • Add sugar to taste, yogurt, and 3-4 tbsp. milk
  • Blend all ingredients using a whisk or a hand blender.
  • Add few ice cubes are serve chilled.

Here are the pictures of mango lassi made with canned mango pulp as well as fresh mangoes.

Really simple! blend a cup of plain yogurt with a cup of mango pulp.
Add sugar if needed. Add ice or chilled milk to thin it down if needed. I like to keep mine nice and thick.




Serve with chocolate straw!

Mango lassi served with homemade milk and dark chocolate swirls for Annakut!

OR
Choose fresh seasonal mangoes.

Peel the skin and cut into pieces.



Add 1/4 cup plain yogurt and a tbsp. of sugar (depending of how sweet or tart mangoes are)
Blend them together.
Add ice or chilled milk to make it pourable.



Serve thick mango yogurt as a dessert.



OR
Use melon baller to make mango balls.



Use a tall glass. Pour mango lassi over ice and top with Mango balls.
I like to use my straw spoon to serve this lassi.
Straw to sip and spoon to eat mango balls :)


Enjoy Chilled Mango Lassi!!
