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!

Helpful information:

Frozen fruit will make for a thicker smoothie. I find it extremely helpful to taste your fruit before adding it to the blender, because some fruit such as berries and mango’s can be very tart.

If you are not a person who desires a bitter or sour beverage, then you may want to add a splash of vanilla or another type of sweetener when you put your fruit into the blender.
