The classic Indian lassi is made with mango and yogurt. Today, we use coconut milk and that makes this a vegan and dairy-free lassi too. You can use fresh, frozen, or canned mangoes and it takes just 5 minutes to prepare.
Summer is here people!! Now, summer in Israel is not easy. It can go up to 40 degrees Celsius. The air condition is on but getting out of the house is like walking into the oven. My kids will not eat as much of course because they want to drink something cold. So fruit juices, milkshakes, and yogurt drinks are always a must in the fridge
The name may be Indian but as you can see it's basically mango, yogurt, and sugar so, similar to a mango milkshake or mango smoothie.
Ingredients and substitutes
- Mangoes - Use fresh, frozen, or canned. If using canned mangoes omit or reduce sugar in the recipe. If you have extra mangoes around freeze mangoes - to use off-season.
- Agave /Honey - Mangoes are naturally sweet so only add any sweeteners if necessary.
- Coconut milk - I use coconut milk but coconut cream works too. The cream makes a richer frozen milkshake while the milk makes a lassi like pouring consistency. If using the cream, I suggest using ¼ cup first, add more if you want it creamier.
- Ice - Ice works great in summer drinks but you could omit the ice. Blend it all without ice, add a little water to get the right consistency, then chill for a few hours.
Step by step instructions
- Place mango, coconut, cardamom powder, and ice cubes in a blender. Blend until smooth.
- Taste and adjust sweetness. If necessary, add the honey or agave syrup and blend some more.
- Pour into an individual serving-glass like this. You can garnish with fresh cut mangoes or sprinkle more cardamom powder.
