Mango Lassi With Cardamom

Sip on a Mango Lassi Morning, Noon, or Night

Mouth-puckeringly tart, slightly sweet, cool, and creamy, the mango lassi is a natural pairing with spicy Indian dishes as its dairy base quells fiery bursts of heat. Thankfully, like its smoothie kin, it's a simple recipe to master and, likewise, worth considering beyond the dinner table.

Thinner than a typical smoothie (thanks to a healthy dose of milk), a lassi isn't an exact analogue per se but ticks many of the same boxes. For those only familiar with it as Indian-restaurant fare, it might seem like an odd choice for breakfast, but I bet once you try your hand at the easy recipe, you'll want to enjoy it morning, noon, and night.

Mango Lassi


We're partial to whole-milk dairy in this recipe, but use whatever you prefer. For an alternative garnish, try a sprinkling of chopped pistachios.

Mango Lassi With Cardamom


  1. 1 mango (about 1 cup), peeled and coarsely chopped
  2. 1 cup plain yogurt
  3. 1/3 cup milk
  4. 1 tablespoon honey, or to taste
  5. Scant pinch of salt
  6. Pinch of freshly ground cardamom (optional), for garnish


  1. Blend together the mango, yogurt, milk, honey, and salt until smooth. Taste, and adjust with extra honey or salt.
  2. If your mango is particularly fibrous, strain the lassi through a fine-mesh strainer; otherwise, pour into a glass, and sprinkle with cardamom if using.

Makes 1 drink.
