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. It’s great for any time of the year and especially delightful during summertime.
I first tasted Mango Lassi 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. Mango lassi is just perfect with fiery and spice-laden Indian food.
Here is my easy mango lassi recipe that is so easy to make. All it takes is 5 minutes in a blender. I use honey instead of sugar but you can use either, or agave nectar.

Can this be done with frozen mango? HOw to modify the ICE then?
Same recipe and same method.
Hi. I have tried fresh Australian and fresh mangos from peru. I have also tried alphonso and kesar mango pulp. The mango neutralises the yoghurt taste and the yoghurt neutralises the mango taste. The best outcome is a faint taste of each. Any advice? Thanks.
That’s how you make mango lassi, mangos and yogurt.
Somehow the restaurant has a technique in preserving the respective flavours eg buttermilk etc
