  • Blender


  • 1 cup Greek Yogurt
  • 1 cup Chilled milk
  • ¼ tsp Cardamom Powder
  • 2 Mangoes cubed
  • 1 tbsp Sugar or sweetener of your choice


  • Start by cutting the mango. I find it easier to simply peel the skin off the mango using a vegetable peeler. Cut and keep the mango pieces aside. Optionally, you can use mango pulp as well.
  • In a blender jar, add the yogurt, milk, cardamom powder, and sugar, along with the mangoes.
  • Blend until smooth. If you like your mango lassi ice-cold, you can add ice cubes before blending.
  • Pour into glasses, garnish with chopped pistachios and saffron (optional), and serve cold.



  • Make your own cardamom powder by crushing the cardamom pods in a mortar and pestle until the seeds are released. Discard the cardamom pod skin, and crush the seeds until they are finely ground. Use a pinch of this cardamom powder in the lassi.
  • If you cannot find sweet mangoes, use tinned mango pulp or frozen mangoes.
  • To make vegan mango lassi, replace the dairy with any variety of plant-based yogurt and plant-based
