Ingredient Notes and Substitutions for Mango Lassi

Mangos: If fresh mangos are not available, you can use frozen mango chunks. Ensure they are thawed before blending.

Greek yogurt: Regular plain or plant-based yogurt can be used. However, Greek yogurt adds extra creaminess.

Milk: Whole milk, skim milk, almond milk, or coconut milk are all great options. The choice of milk will impact the overall richness of the lassi.

Honey: Substitute with agave nectar, or maple syrup for a natural sweetener alternative. 

Additional flavors: Enhance the flavor with a pinch of ground cardamom, a splash of rose water, or a dash of saffron strands for a unique twist.

Ice (optional): Include ice cubes in the blender for an instantly chilled lassi. This is a great option if you want to serve the lassi immediately.

Recipe Tips and Tricks

Choose ripe mangos: Opt for ripe mangoes to ensure a naturally sweet and flavorful lassi.

Use Greek yogurt for creaminess: Greek yogurt adds a thick, rich, velvety texture to the lassi. If unavailable, regular plain yogurt works but may result in a slightly thinner consistency.

Experiment with milk: Select your preferred type of milk. Whole milk adds richness, while almond or coconut milk are extra tasty dairy-free alternatives.

Adjust sweetness gradually: Start with a smaller amount of honey and taste to avoid making the lassi overly sweet.

Incorporate additional flavors: Enhance the lassi with spices like ground cardamom or a splash of rose water for extra depth. Experiment with small amounts to find your preferred flavor balance.

Blend for smoothness: Ensure a thorough blending process to achieve a smooth and lump-free consistency. Blend for longer if you’ve opted to use frozen mango chunks.

Serve chilled: For the best experience, refrigerate the lassi for at least 30 minutes before serving. Alternatively, serve over ice for an instant refreshment.

Storage

Refrigeration: Store any leftover Mango Lassi in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to a day, maybe 2, to maintain its freshness and flavor.

Avoid freezing: Due to the dairy content, freezing may alter the texture of the lassi, so it is not recommended.

Stir before serving: Before drinking refrigerated Mango Lassi, give it a gentle stir to recombine any separated ingredients for a consistent texture and taste.

Mango Lassi Recipe FAQs

What spices can I add for extra flavor?

Ground cardamom, a splash of rose water, or saffron strands can enhance the lassi’s flavor.

How can I make the lassi thicker or thinner?

Adjust the thickness by adding more or less milk during blending. Ice cubes can also be used for a thinner consistency.

What’s the best way to garnish Mango Lassi?

Garnish with mint leaves, chopped nuts such as pistachios, cashews, or almonds, or a sprinkle of cinnamon for added texture and flavor.

Can I make a larger batch for a gathering?

Absolutely! Simply scale up the ingredients to accommodate larger groups. I wouldn’t make it too far ahead of time if you’re using dairy.
