This delicious and healthy shake can conquer any sweet tooth without guilt. Great for extinguishing the fire in your mouth after eating hot curries! Use Indian mangoes, preferably Alphonso or another sweet Indian cultivar. These are the orange ones, not the red and green South American variety.

I used vanilla yoghurt instead of plain yoghurt and I skipped the milk. I also used a teaspoon of cinnamon instead of cardamom and it was perfect. Very tasty and full of nutrients. Read More

This recipe is very good despite the fact that I did not have 2 cups of yogurt. I did not add cardamom though. However my only recommendation would be to use very ripe champagne mangoes. They are the sweetest kind that you will find in the US in my experience. There are many varieties of mangoes and most of those that arrive in the US from Latin America are on the bitter/acid end of the spectrum. Therefore they are not the best kind to use for this recipe as it will be almost impossible to get them as sweet as you would need to get a pulp made quality mango lassi. Ripen the mangoes outside the fridge for a few days until they start showing little black spots. Next time I will add vanilla and see how it tastes but as an overall this is a great recipe. I used also organic cane sugar! Read More

I made this without added sugar and I uses soy milk instead of regular milk. I used two of the red ("Tommy Atkins") mangos generally available in US grocery stores and it was sweet enough. Add the cardamom if you have it! It really contributes to the flavor! Read More
