Lassi is a popular yogurt based versatile drink that can be served either sweet or savoury. Traditional lassi is just a blend of yogurt, water and salt that is perfect to quench thirst in summer. Lassi is one of the best summer drinks to prevent dehydration. Among various flavoured lassi such as masala lassi, dry fruit lassi, rose lassi, mango Lassi is one of the favourite and most preferred beverages in India during summer which is co incidentally a mango season. This classic drink is the perfect accompaniment to spicy food such as paneer jalfrezi, vegetable chettinad.

How to make delicious mango lassi 

The texture and creaminess of lassi depends on quality of yogurt we use. I would suggest you to use full fat natural yogurt. You may not get creamy and silky texture with low-fat yogurt rather you will have watery lassi. Always use chilled yogurt and mango pulp to make sure lassi is cold but doesn’t water it down. Do not use ice cubes as they make lassi watery pretty quickly.

Is mango lassi recipe adaptable?

Feel free to customise this recipe as per your taste preference. You could add a dash of rose-water or kewra water to enhance the flavour. Swap agave or maple syrup for refined sugar as healthier option. Substitute dairy milk and yogurt with unsweetened non dairy milk and non dairy yogurt. You could sprinkle few chopped cashews or pistachios along with almonds on top of lassi.
