Mango lassi is one of my favorite Indian beverages. Mango Lassi is an easy-to-make rich, popular Indian beverage with fresh mango, yogurt and honey. Mango lassis are great for any time of the year and especially delightful during summertime.
Even though I grew up in Malaysia, where Indians are the third largest ethnic group, I’d never had mango lassi until I came to the United States. I first tasted it at an Indian buffet restaurant, and since then I am hooked. I love its fruity sweet taste, creamy richness from yogurt, and the smoothness of blended mango down my throat. Mango lassi is just perfect with fiery and spice-laden Indian food.
Here is my easy mango lassi recipe that is totally painless to prepare and takes only 5 minutes in a blender. I use honey instead of sugar but you can use either of them, or agave nectar.
