Mango Lassi

Everybody is familiar with mango milkshake. But “Mango Lassi” ? Well, this is what I tasted recently at a mall and it was so delicious, that I had to make this at home. I love mango and I love lassi – so naturally (according to my opinion), the combination of these two ingredients can only be heavenly!

Any ripened and sweet mango will do. Personally, I would prefer Alphonso mango. However, at the time of making this I had Mallika (a very large, sweet and fleshy variety available locally in Bangalore). The curds too should be preferably sweet not sour.
So, try this out before the mango season ends!

Mango Lassi 12


Ripe Mango
1 cup
Sugar (optional)
As per taste
As required


  1. Wash the mango, slice it and remove the pulp. Or peel the mango, discard the seed and cut it into chunks - whichever way you prefer. (Keep a tablespoon of this pulp aside for garnishing – this is optional.)
  2. Place the rest of the pulp in a blender along with the curds and run it for a few minutes till it is well blended. Add a little water to get the desired consistency.
  3. Pour this mixture into glasses and top it with a tsp of the mango pulp kept aside for garnishing.
  4. Serve chilled.

  • The addition of sugar and water depends upon once preference.
  • I have added a little water and omitted sugar.
  • If the curd is a little watery, it does not matter – in which case just omit adding water and if the curd is slightly sour, add some sugar.
