Mango Lassi

There's nothing like a glass of chilled lassi when the intense heat of the sun during summer months causes exertion and rising temperatures torment us especially kids who are at a greater risk of dehydration. Here is the recipe of luscious refreshing lassi that will help your family to beat the heat, and stay hydrated for longer duration during such torturous times. I decided to add some mango pulp and make delicious mango lassi which is a must when we dine outside. While preparing this lassi I prefer to use frozen Alphonso mango pulp because the ones that are available in the area where I reside are costly, moreover they lack that firmness as well as distinctive aroma. If you are lucky to get fresh Alphonso mangoes then go ahead and use them to prepare the pulp in quantity as mentioned below and go ahead with the rest of the recipe.


1 cup mango pulp [ if using frozen pulp remove from the freezer few mins before and allow it to thaw)
1 cup yogurt
1/2 cup milk, boiled and chilled, (You may add more if you prefer not so thick consistency and want to dilute the lassi)
1-2 tsp sugar (Adjust according to the sweetness of mangoes)
Ice cubes (optional)

To garnish
Few mint leaves
Silvered almonds and saffron strands
Dash of cadramom (optional)
mango chunks [if you have fresh mangoes]


Combine the mango pulp, yogurt, chilled milk, sugar in a blender and blend  for few minutes until smooth and creamy. Pour the lassi into glasses, add ice cubes (optional). Garnish with mint leaves and serve.

Sometimes I add cardamom powder to the lassi and garnish it with silvered almonds and saffron strands.

Happy Cooking!
