MMMMM….. Yummy Mango Lassi


Ingredients (Serves 2)

  • 1 1/4 cups plain low-fat yogurt
  • 1/2 teaspoon lemon juice
  • 1/2 cup fresh mango pulp
  • 1/3 cup cold water
  • 1 to 2 tablespoons honey or sugar (depending on how sweet you want it)
  • 9 to 10 standard-size ice cubes




  • If using a fresh mango, peel and remove the flesh from the pit; cut mango into small pieces.
  • In a blender, add yogurt, lemon juice, mango pulp, water, and honey or sugar. Blend approximately 2 to 3 minutes or until you see a little forming in the mixture. Add the ice and blend until frothy!

NOTE:  Some people like to pour the mango mixture over ice cubes instead of blending the ice cubes in the drink.
