Mango yogurt shake (Mango lassi) recipe

Topics: Recipes, Food,


  • 3 parts whole-milk yogurt, not the strained Greek kind
  • 1 part milk
  • 1 part mango
  • Pinch ground cardamom (optional)
  • Crushed pistachio (optional)
  • Cream (optional)

Note that the recipe is heavy on the yogurt and designed for people who are really looking for a mango-flavored yogurt drink. I personally prefer this ratio:

  • 3 parts yogurt
  • 3 parts mango
  • 1 part milk
  • sugar, to taste (optional)


  1. If you’re using a prepared purée, just whisk or mix together. If using fresh fruit, purée everything together in a blender or food processor. Garnish with any or none of the optional ingredients.
