Mangoes are the best of all fruits according to me, these are seasonal and available in many varieties in different parts of the world. What makes them so good is definitely its taste and rich color. These days we get to taste mangoes in the form of pulp as well which are readily available for us to use them wherever required. For mango lassi, I would recommend using pulp as it is really smooth and mixes up pretty easily with the yogurt but if you prefer to use real mangoes then go for it! make them into a smooth puree and use it.
Since lassi’s are made from yogurt, it really cools your body and are ideal for consumption during hot summer days. Another reason is that mangoes generate heat in our body but when consumed with yogurt as lassi, it gets negated. So I would proudly say that most of our Indian foods are prepared in a specific ways for a reason 🙂 This is a kids friendly recipe too which they can make it by themself, if you provide them with all the ingredients they could just whisk them all together and drink it chilled 🙂 No stove or No special apparatus required.
Mango pulp – ¾ cup
Thick Yogurt – ⅓ cup
Milk – 2 tbsp
Sugar or Honey or Maple Syrup – To Taste (optional)
Few mango pieces – optional
- Adding sugar or honey or maple syrup is purely optional as the mango pulp itself is very sweet.
In a blender, add all the ingredient and blend them for few seconds.
Chill and serve after few hours.
Add chopped mango pieces while serving (Optional)
Milk is added depending on the lassi’s consistency, you can skip it completely if you like the lassi thick.
Few tbsp of lemon juice can also be added for a tangy flavor.
