mango lassi

A loooong time ago, when Joel and I lived in our apartment in North Dallas, we used to eat at an Indian restaurant (my first Indian food experience was there, actually!). They had this delicious drink called a mango lassi. It was like a mango smoothie and we loved it! You may ask yourself, “what exactly is a ‘lassi’?”, well, to the best of my knowledge, it’s a smoothie made with fruit, yogurt, milk, and honey. Sounds good, right? Well it is!

I love that these are made with fat-free yogurt, so they’re pretty much guilt-free! You can use any fruit you like, although I believe mango is the most common. I’m going to try strawberry next, then probably peach or blueberry since Cassidy loves blueberries so much. She loved the mango flavor, though! This was a great “dessert” after a healthy meal and I felt great about feeding it to my baby. I know these will be a popular beverage this summer, since it’s so light and refreshing!

Mango Lassi

2 cups mango, chopped (I used frozen mango, which saves so much time!)
1/2 cup nonfat greek yogurt
1 cup milk
1 tablespoon honey
1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract

Blend all ingredients in a blender until smooth (if you’re using frozen mango, it may be pretty thick, almost like frozen yogurt). Serve immediately. Serves about 4.

  1. I love mangoes, and this mango lassi sounds perfect! I could probably drink all four servings on my own. =)

  2. Good recipe! How old is your baby? Just be careful giving honey to babies under 1 as it it’s not pasturised and can contain botulism spores. X

    Yes, I’m aware of that. She’s 13 months, so we’re good. :)

  3. I made this last night, and it was fantastic! I made one substitution though…instead of using the greek yogurt, I used Yoplait light apricot mango yogurt. Delish! Thanks for posting this! Love your blog :)

  4. I wondered what to serve my father for “dessert” after supper on Father’s Day. I’m on a quest to show him that healthy meals can taste good where as he has type II diabetes. I whipped this up, even though he initially turned his nose up at the title and he loved it! He even copied down the recipe so he could make it at home. Woohoo!
