A probiotic mango lassi is a sweet, tangy and refreshing treat. I love serving it for dessert after an Indian meal, however, you could eat with breakfast or as an afternoon snack. This mango smoothie is super easy to make. It is sugar-free, gluten-free, probiotic, and vegan-friendly (if you use almond milk). Best of all, it has a fancy name!
Who wouldn’t want a probiotic mango lassi?!
- 2 large ripe mangos (about 1 lbs worth)
- 1 cup of milk
- 1 cup yogurt (see notes for alternatives)
- Sugar to taste
- Peel the mango and cut it off the pit. Place all pieces of mango in a blender.
- Puree the mango. If you want a pulp-free lassi, then push the mango through a sieve discarding the fibers (I usually don't bother with this step... I like fiber).
- Return the puree to the blender and add in the milk and yogurt. Blend until smooth and serve, or store in the fridge for up to 24 hours.
-If you don’t have a Blendtec or a Vitamix then you might have to add the milk to the mango to help with the blending. You can just strain out the fibers or leave them in for fiber!
-Feel free to use milk kefir or cultured buttermilk instead of yogurt.
-To make a dairy-free version of the lassi simply substitute for a vegan milk and yogurt alternative. I recommend coconut yogurt or almond yogurt.
-I don’t add sugar, but if you like your lassi sweeter then add up to 4 tsp of sugar.
-If you have leftovers, freeze it in a popsicle maker for a probiotic creamsicle.
