Mango and Apricot Lassi


Mango and Apricot Lassi

Lassi is a drink made by blending yoghurt with water and spices, this Indian creation is usually enjoyed cold as a hot weather refreshment consumed after lunch.  There are several types of lassi’s where it can be served either sweet or savoury.  Sweet lassi usually is flavoured with sugar, rosewater and/or lemon alongside with different fruits while the savoury variant is flavoured with salt and spices.  There is another version of lassi called Bhang lassi and it more of an intoxicating drink rather than sweet or savoury, made out of bhang a derivative of cannabis this drink will give you the same effect as the chocolate brownies you find in Amsterdam.

For this post we won’t be making some Bhang lassi otherwise I might be writing some funny stuff or uploading some photos not totally related to this post, so for today we will be making something more tamed, the Mango lassi.

2/3 cup milk, chilled
2 large mangoes, sliced

  1. So, the apricot comes from the yogurt and the mango from actual fruit in hand! Wonderfully interesting as I love lassi – thank you!

  2. I learned making Mango Lassi from using this huge Indian mango pulp. So I actually never made one from using fresh mangoes. What a great combination with apricot! Sounds delish!

  3. i always get lassi when i eat at Indian / Pakistani restaurants. I should have thought of making this at home earlier. Are the cardamon seeds you are reffering to the same as green cardamon? Thanks for this great recipe I will definite give it shot.

  4. Ha! Lol at the idea of your uploading random photos from a Bhang lassi. Anytime we eat at an Indian restaurant I always get a mango lassi, they’re so delicious. Next time I make an Indian meal, I’ll see these to round it out.
