Mangoes, there are so many varieties to choose from, so help yourself to your favorite. My fav just happens to be the Haden mango for this lassi recipe.

If you choose a smaller variety such as the Alphonso mango, you may need to use three or four mangoes for this recipe.

Your choice

Some of you may not like coconut, please fill free to go with your choice of milk. Remember this is a ‘Chef Ann style’ lassi. I do recommend almond milk as a nice option for this mango lassi.

You can also use any brand of vanilla bean ice-cream you like.

Crushed ice or ice cubes

Another tip to consider, omit crushed ice in the blender. Add ice cubes to your glass then pour your mango ingredients over the ice. Mango lassi over ice, how nice is that!

Lactose intolerant?

Those of you that are lactose intolerant, not to worry just skip the ice cream and the yogurt. Don’t forget, the coconut creamer for this recipe is (non-dairy).

Here are several great (milk) alternatives to choose from; Almond, Cashew, Coconut, Hemp, Rice, and Rose milk.

Less sugar

This fresh mango lassi is presented to you with far less sugar than the traditional mango lassi found in Punjab province. For those who prefer to do as little sugar as possible, but still want to live on the edge a bit, here you have it!

Enjoy this great beverage any time of day!

  1. Can this be a recipe for those who are diabetic? Or can you figure out other ingredients so Diabetics can make one similar to it?

    • Chef Ann says:

      Hi Terry, and thank you so much for stopping by. The answer to your first question is Yes, with adjustments!
      As a diabetic, I do realize the importance of watching your sugar intake. The experts recommend no more than 10mg of sugar per day. With this being said, the Haagen-Dazs ice cream has to be eliminated. Try to find a low sugar vanilla if possible. The problem today is that almost everything has sugar in it. Make sure you check the sugar on the coconut creamer that you choose. The creamer in the recipe is a good choice because it’s very low in sugar. If you are unable to find a low sugar coconut creamer or coconut milk, try the unsweetened Almond milk with 1% sugar. You will need to skip the very ripe banana and go with a small firm one instead. Replace the honey roasted slivered almonds for garnish with raw crushed almonds. Here is a link I would like you to check out. Let me know if you find it helpful. Please fill free to keep the dialog going if you have any more questions or comments.
      Thank you and have a Great day. :-))
