Best Ever Mango Lassi

Mango lassi is a great accompaniment to spicy Indian foods. Tame that fire on your tongue with this cool, soothing and tummy-settling concoction. This is so easy to make - all you need is a blender, some ice, ripe mangoes, yoghurt, milk, and sugar to taste.

Choose Your Mango
The tastier the mango, the tastier the resulting lassi. Pick mangoes that are softer (yet not bruised) - these are usually riper. Try to get the ones that give off a sweet, aromatic mango-ey scent.

(makes 6 cups lassi)
1 large ripe mango
1 cup yoghurt (I like full cream)
1/2 cup milk (I like full cream too!)
3 cups ice cubes
3 tablespoons sugar or honey

  1. Peel mango and deseed. Cube the mango. It should yield 2 cups.
  2. Put all the ingredients into the blender and whizz till smooth. It's ok to add a little water to help with the blending process. 
  3. Taste, add more sugar or honey if desired.
  4. Serve immediately. Yum!
