This recipe is a delicious vegan spin on a classic mango lassi with mango, coconut yogurt, lime juice, and a sweetener.
- 2 cups / 330 grams frozen ripe mango*
- 1 cup / 240 ml plant-based milk, such as soy milk, oat milk, almond milk or coconut milk
- 1/2 cup / 60 ml coconut yogurt (plain, unsweetened) *
- Juice of 1 lime
- 1 tablespoon maple syrup
- ½ teaspoon vanilla extract
- ½ teaspoon ground cumin seeds
- chopped fresh mango for serving
If you are using fresh mango, cut the mango in big chinks.
Add the fresh or frozen mango, plant-based milk, coconut yogurt, lime juice, and sweetener to a blender or food processor.
Blend on high until smooth and creamy. Stop blending once it is smooth; if you blend it too long, the mango lassi will get warm, especially when using a high-speed blender.
Adjust the taste and texture if needed.
If the texture is too thin and not cold, add more yogurt or frozen mango/ice cubes.
When the texture is too thick, add more plant-based milk. A mango lassi should be sweet, so add more sweetener if it’s not sweet enough.
For more acidity, add more lime juice, and for more substance (creaminess), add more yogurt.
Serve immediately as is or top with more mango and sweetener.
Any leftovers can be kept for a day in the fridge or weeks in the freezer. You can also freeze this recipe as popsicles or as ice cubes.
You can use or add other fruits such as peaches or pineapples to this recipe.
Fresh of frozen fruit
If you use fresh fruit, add 1 cup of ice cubes to create a thick and cold texture. If you use frozen fruit, you don’t need to use ice cubes unless you want to make your lassi super cold. Mango lassi is best when ice cold.
Instead, you can use soy yogurt or any yogurt you like
A few options are soy milk, almond milk, or coconut milk (for an extra exotic taste).
Breakfast mango lassi
If you want to make this lassi more filling or a breakfast lassi, add 1-2 tablespoons rolled oats and one banana. This can also thicken the mango lassi when you use fresh instead of frozen mango.
