Do you also love to drink an ice cold mango lassi on hot days? I love the taste of mango combined with creamy buttermilk and a hint of yogurt. Plus, it’s a good way to feed your body with vitamins. If you buy mango lassi in the supermarket, it comes with a lot of added sugar, which is in my opinion not needed and only makes it harder to keep up with your bikini shape. Therefore, if you like mango lassi, try out my homemade recipe which is done with minimal effort. You only need a few ingredients and a blender.
Lassi is a traditional drink from Indian, which you can have with different kind of fruits. An excellent companion for spicy food, as the milk neutralizes the spicy taste in your mouth. The next time you cook an Indian dish at home, serve this mango lassi with dinner.
The vanilla sugar can be substituted with one teaspoon vanilla extract and one teaspoon sugar. If you like your drink sweet, you can add sugar in the form of coconut blossom syrup, fresh dates or date syrup. And if you don’t like mango, change it with any other fruit you want or is in season.
