Mango Lassi Recipe
Recipe Type: Beverage, Mango Cuisine: Asian Yields: 2 servings Prep time: 10 min
1/4 cups plain low-fat yogurt 1/2 teaspoon freshly-squeezed lemon juice 1/2 cup fresh mango pulp* 1/3 cup cold water 1 to 2 tablespoons honey or sugar (depending on how sweet you want it) 9 to 10 standard-size ice cubes
- When choosing a mango, pick one that is plump and heavy for its size. Most importantly, the mango should be fragrant when held near your nose. Canned or frozen mango may be substituted. If using sweetened mango, reduce the amount of sugar used. Allow frozen mango to thaw approximately 30 minutes before using.
If using a fresh mango, peel and remove the flesh from the pit; cut mango into small pieces. Also reserve and use all the juices.
In a blender, add yogurt, lemon juice, mango pulp, water, and honey or sugar. Blend approximately 2 to 3 minutes or until you see a little forming in the mixture. Add the ice and blend until frothy! NOTE: Some people like to pour the mango mixture over ice cubes instead of blending the ice cubes in the drink.
The Mango Lassi can be kept refrigerated for up to 24 hours.
Pour into glasses and enjoy!
