How to make mango lassi

  1. The first step is the most important. Choose a good ripe and sweet mango as it will be the predominant flavor of our yogurt smoothie.
  2. We peel the mango and cut it into cubes. We add the pieces to the blender.
  3. We put the kefir or the yogurts inside the blender glass. We have opted for natural yogurts. However, you can also use Greek yogurt, which gives the lassi a creamier touch.
  4. We add the cardamom with the rest of the ingredients. If we opt for the seeds, it is important to know that the skins will remain in the smoothie.
  5. Finally we add a pinch of turmeric and optionally a little sugar.
  6. We beat everything for a few seconds until we obtain a homogeneous mixture. Another option is to blend everything, but leaving some pieces of mango.
  7. We let it cool in the freezer or refrigerator and we can now enjoy this exquisite Indian drink, the mango lassi.

I started cosmorecipes in 2020 during the time we were cooped up at home. Having so much free time I spent a lot of time in the kitchen trying different dishes. So I decided to mix cooking with my other great passion: web programming. That's why I decided to open this blog where I post the different recipes that I'm cooking.
