I used 2 cups of water and substituted honey for the sugar. Now I no longer need to go to the Indian restaurants to get my lassi fix. Thanks. Oh by the way my toddler gulped it down! Read More

Pretty good. Make sure to get a ripe mango. Other recipes suggest adding cumin (a pinch of roasted ground seeds) or cardamom (1/4 tsp). Don't try to dilute with milk--it muddies the mango taste. Add water seltzer or vodka. I added half the recommended sugar and it was fine. I'm glad she said to take the seed out. It makes an awful racket in the blender. Read More

Too watery. The water measurement is incorrect. It ends up diluting all the taste of the mango. Read More

I really wanted to make a mango lassi just like the ones in the Indian restaurants and this turned out wonderfully. I do have to caution that some of the fibrous mango strings may not blend completely but it is still a great drink! Read More

This smoothie is very good if you are a mango lover. I added more honey for flavor. Read More

Too watery!! My kinda lassi has no water at all, it turns out like a creamy smooth, thick mango smoothie.People who like it that way can completely omit the water.And about the mango strings, strain the mango through a seive. As some of the others suggested, do get a very ripe and non-soury mango. For those who do not have access to mangoes, indian and chinese stores carry cans of alphonso mango pulp, which works just as good. For a creamier treat, you can add whipped cream, turns out really thick almost like a shake. Read More

Good! I reduced this to make 1 serving (a big one) as follows. 1 small mango 3/4 cup yogurt 1 cup water and 1 teaspoon sugar. Blending it all. Yum! Healthy too. Read More

There was too much water required. I only used 2 cups and it was still too watery. I also think it might be better with mango nectar versus the ripe mangos. This recipe captures the essence but needs a lot of tweeking to get it right. Read More
