  • 1 cup mango pulp, 250 ml, use fresh if possible from 2-3 sweet mangoes else can use canned mango pulp
  • 1 cup yogurt, 240 ml, plain whole milk yogurt
  • 1/2 cup milk (cold), or cold water, to thin out the lassi
  • 1-2 tablespoons sugar, or adjust to taste
  • 1/4 teaspoon cardamom powder
  • pistachios, to garnish, optional
  • saffron strands, to garnish, optional


  1. To a large bowl, add 1 cup fresh mango pulp. I got the pulp from 2 large sweet mangoes which I blended in a blender to make it smooth .

    You can use canned mango pulp if you can't find sweet mangoes. 

  2. To the same bowl, now add yogurt. I have used plain whole milk yogurt here.

  3. Now add cold milk (or water). I add this to thin out the lassi a bit. Also add the sugar and the cardamom powder.

  4. Blend everything until well combined. I used an immersion blender.

  5. Pour the mango lassi into serving glasses and chill before serving! You may garnish with pistachios, saffron strands before serving!

Recipe Notes

  1. For best taste and flavor use fresh mango puree from sweet mangoes. You may use canned mango pulp if you can't find sweet mangoes but fresh gives the best results in my opinion.
  2. You can thin out the lassi to the consistency you prefer by using either cold milk or water.
