Notes

  • You may use frozen mango chunks if mango is not in season, or freeze your fresh mango for a few hours for a colder, thicker drink. Frozen fruits give a creamy texture to a smoothie or milkshake.
  • You can use quarter tsp. of ginger powder instead of cardamom powder for a spice kick to the drink.
  • Cardamom, saffron or rose water are optional.
  • Adjust sugar/honey according to the sweetness of mangoes or to suit your taste. You can substitute with jaggery or dates but there may be a slight change in colour of the lassi.
  • The colour of the lassi depends on the variety of mangoes used to prepare.
  • You can also experiment lassi with other fruits.Dilute the lassi to the desired consistency, if required, with water or milk.
