Cool Mango Drink Recipes

Mango Lassi


  1. 1-1/2 to 2 cups Mango pulp (requires about 3-4 large ripe sweet mangoes)
  2. 1 cup thick yogurt (low fat/vanilla flavored also works)
  3. honey/sugar
  4. 1/4 cup water (if needed for consistency)
  5. pinch of cardamom powder (optional)

  1. Make sure not to spill the juice Add it to the processor. The more you like the mango, more pulp you can use for this recipe. It adds a wonderful color to your Lassi too.
  2. Process it until smooth. Now add the thick Yogurt.
  3. Process it together until well blended. If yours is not sweet enough and too thick, add sugar/honey and water. Blend it once again – quick pulses should do.
  4. Pour it into glasses and enjoy.

Mango Milkshake


  1. 3 small ripe mangoes (or use 1 large mango. See Note below)
  2. 1/4-1/2 tsp cardamom powder (start less and increase as per taste)
