“get ready to taste something exciting and amazing”
Lassi’s originate from India where they can be sweet drink or salty drinks. To qualify as a lassi, a drink needs to have yogurt and a spice- that is it! So, clearly, there are hundreds of different ways to make a lassi. A mango lassi happens to be one of the most popular forms of the drink and our favorite as well.
All you need to make a classic mango lassi is some ripe mango, yogurt and milk. Those three ingredients can be the whole drink. However, we like to make our lassi a little sweeter by adding agave nectar. We also love the idea that lassi’s always have a spice so we added cardamom. Cardamom is a perfect spice to pair with mango as it is a little fruity, a little minty and a tiny bit spicy. It is a unique and amazing spice that really brings this drink to life.
Give our mango lassi recipe a try in the summer. It is the perfect non alcoholic drink to help you cool down from the hot summer sun. Of course, we like to drink it year round because it is just that good. Enjoy!
