Lassi is a traditional yogurt drink really popular in India and Southeast Asian countries. It is absolutely delicious, refreshing and (sorta) healthy! Every time I eat Indian food I can’t help but order one. This is my own simple recipe I based on recipe research from Mango Lassi II and Veg Recipes of India.
- 1 ripe mango
- 1 cup yogurt (greek or regular) -any flavor is fine
- 1/2 cup milk (or your own preference of milk substitute)
Some recipes will suggest sugar or honey but since my greek yogurt is already honey flavored and the mango was very ripe- it was already very sweet.
Chop up the mango. I found a neat trick for cutting mangos, stand the mango up, slice off the sides and carefully score a grid without cutting through the skin, push it inside out, and cut off the cubes.
And just like that – a mango lassi drink! I was so excited to be able to make lassi at home and drink it whenever I want. With the warm summer weather, a lassi is a great alternative to smoothies!
