Mango Lassi – the Indian smoothie is the perfect drink to cool you from the inside out on hot summer days.
I love mango lassi’s. It’s practically sacrilege for me to go to an Indian restaurant and not order a mango lassi. Mangoes are my favorite fruit and on this blog you will find lots of smoothies that include mango not to mention jams that include mango, mango crabcakes and a variety of other mango recipes. Surprisingly, I don’t have mango lassi. So when I was perusing Sapana’s blog for a recipe for her surprise virtual baby shower from her Blogging Marathon friends, this was the recipe selected. As you can see from the collage below, she has a wide variety of recipes on her blog and every body found something delicious and unique from her blog to celebrate her upcoming bundle of joy.
Do you love mangoes as much as me? Well then check out some of these other mango recipes!
- Mexican Mango Pudding
- Mango Jicama Salad
- Butterfly Pea Flour Sticky Rice & Mango
- Broiled Mango Parfait
- Mango Strawberry Lavender Jam
- Green Mango Dal
I love Sapana’s version better than the restaurant version. The restaurant version is usually richer and thicker and is quite an indulgence. Hers felt lighter that I wouldn’t feel so guilty in indulging in more often. Also I am not sure the restaurant version always includes the cardamom and saffron as I found this version more flavorful as well.
This Indian style smoothie is a great summer time treat, when mangoes are in season!
Who can resist this thick and delicious smoothie with mango? It’s definitely Mango Lassi time!
