Easy Mango Lassi

Since I started this week by making Slow Cooker Indian Butter Chicken I thought I would continue the Indian food theme with another classic recipe, a mango lassi. Lassi’s are similar to fruit smoothies and come in sweet and salty flavors. I’ve never tried salty, so I’m sticking with the sweet version for this post. And this will be my first time making a mango lassi at home. I can’t wait to try it!

Nicely frothed with fresh dollops of yogurt, ripe mango, sugar, cardamom powder and heaps of ice cubes, Easy Mango Lassi Recipe is a soothing delight.

The Ingredients

Recipes with “easy” in the title usually have a short list of ingredients, and that’s the case with this one. Just 6 items on the ingredients list without the garnishes (9 items with garnishes). Thankfully several are staple items, like sugar, cardamom powder, milk, and, of course, ice. Yogurt isn’t something I normally keep on hand, but it may very well be a staple item for you. Either way, you’ll have a short grocery list of easy to find and inexpensive items for this recipe.

The Process

If you guessed the first step to this recipe is cutting up the mangoes, you guessed correctly. But don’t worry, it’s not as difficult as you might think. If you don’t have a mango corer, this video shows you how to cut up a mango with just a kitchen knife. I eat mangoes regularly enough that I invested in a mango corer. It makes it even easier to remove the pit without sacrificing any of the fruit. By the way, I got 2 cups of mango chunks out of 2 mangoes with a little left over.

Just like a typical smoothie, the next step is throwing everything into a blender and pushing a button. My blender has a smoothie setting, so I just push that button and wait for it to finish blending. Then it was just a matter of pouring my lassi into a glass and garnishing it with crushed pistachios and saffron strands. The entire process took 10 minutes, just as listed in the recipe.

This mango lassi recipe was super easy, just as promised, and made refreshing drink was a wonderful mix of sweet and a little tartness from the yogurt. I prefer mine on the sweeter side, so I recommend using 2 mangoes even if you get more than the 2 cups of fruit the recipe calls for. It will also give your lassi a more orange color. My first try used 1 1/2 mangoes and was very pale, almost yellow. My only (very minor) complaint is the garnishes aren't listed with the rest of the ingredients. Instead, they're toward the end of the directions. Honestly, the garnishes aren't really necessary as they are more for appearance than flavor.
