mango lassi

I think I’ve shared my slight obsession with Indian food with you all, but instead of chicken curry or dal, today I’ve got a recipe for mango lassi, the popular Indian smoothie.

The typical mango lassi recipes often contain added sugar, along with the store versions I’ve seen, which just doesn’t sit well with me. It’s not that I am anti-sugar, but I’d rather have sugar in the form of cookies, ice cream, etc. – NOT in a smoothie. Fruit is enough sweetness in smoothies for me!

This drink is perfect for breakfast or a snack in the warmer months and very filling due to the protein in the greek yogurt (20 grams!). I used 2% greek yogurt because I think it is so much more creamy than 0% and I love a little fat at all my meals. :)

    Riddle me this: if I love Indian food, and I love smoothies…how have I never had mango lassi? I love how easy you made the recipe – sounds like something I’ll be making for breakfast this week!

    i love a good lassi! have you been to ghandi mahala? we went there a few weeks ago and the food and service were awesome. i got a rose lassi which was surprisingly refreshing.

    No, but it sounds like I should add it to the restaurant list! Rose lassi sounds very interesting – made with rose water?

    I thought about sprinkling a little spice on top – I’ll definitely do that next time! Thanks for the tip!

    Yes, the tofu could replace the protein/creamy factor. I hear you on the non-dairy yogurt, I’ve never been a fan. :(

    What a good idea! It’s a shame we only order these when we go out for Indian food. It’s so easy to make them at home.

    Made these as a mid-day snack to break up some tough landscaping work me and my husband where trying to knock out this weekend. So refreshing!
