Homemade Recipes - How To Make Homemade Mango Lassi Indian Drink

Updated on December 2, 2011

Make Home Made Mango Lassi Drink

Mango Lassi is one of the most popular fruit drinks for Asians. If you go to a restaurant you will be offered this famous refreshing fresh drink. Mango Lassi is made fresh and can be sweetened to your requirements with added sugar or honey. This drink is healthy too, so you can drink as much as you like!

In India, salt lassi or sweet lassi is the way forward, but in USA or UK mango lassi is the ONE drink for anyone and everyone! Mango lassi is on top of the Asian drinks list, so don't miss out and make your own at home!

This drink is very healthy as it consists of fresh natural ingredients. Also it is part of your five a day!

I am sharing my favourite Mango lassi recipe with you to enjoy on any occasion.

My mango lassi recipe is fresh, simple to make and is especially fantastic for a refreshing drink on a hot summers day!

This is an easy mango lassi recipe, so i'm sure you'll enjoy making it as well as drinking it. You will need these ingredients to make your own home made mango lassi drink for up to four people:

  • Fresh mango or mango puree - 2 mangoes or 1/2 pint of mango puree (fresh ripe mango is best, or Kesar mango puree is recommended if you can get hold of it tinned)
  • Yogurt - 1 pint of yogurt (standard yogurt is ok, or you can use any other plain yogurt you like)
  • Sugar - 4 tablespoons or to taste, or you can use pure honey 6 tablespoons or to taste
  • Ice cubes - about 6 pieces (to give it a fresh chilling taste)
  • Carnation milk - 8 tablespoons or to taste (carnation milk gives the mango lassi a fuller and smoother taste)

The Home Made Mango Lassi Recipe

  • Place the ice cubes and yogurt in the blender, and blend for about 10 seconds just to break the ice down
  • Add the mango puree and sugar/honey and blend for another 30 seconds
  • Finally add the rest of the ingredients and blend for up to about 1 minute
  • When you notice the mango lassi drink looking smooth and runny with the ice melted inside the blender, you have nearly completed the process to making your own home made mango lassi drink!
  • Before you finish, taste the drink and see if it is sweet enough for you, if not then add more sugar/honey
  • Pour the mango lassi into the four glasses
  • Enjoy your refreshing home made mango lassi with your friends and family!

I hope you enjoy your drink, if so please share this recipe with your friends and family.

Make Your Mango Lassi More Exciting!

Why not make your fresh drink more exciting by adding more enticing ingredients?

You can also add:

  • A couple of pinches of ground pistachio over the top
  • A dash of ground cardamom in the mixture
  • Full fat milk or fresh cream instead of carnation milk
  • Be naughty and add a dollop of whipped cream over the top
  • Use your imagination and create your own mango lassi drink, but don't forget to keep the yogurt, mangoes and ice as the main ingredients!
