Aam Ki Lassi – Mango Yogurt Smoothie & Mango Milk Shake


Antioxidant, fibre-rich, sweet and juicy mango, considered the ‘king of fruits’, is the most beloved fruit to us at home. Can you imagine yourself sitting under the shade of a tree on a hot sultry day sipping a glass of chilled mango lassi? Its pure bliss! The essence of this enticing wonder, Aam ki lassi, adds a breath of freshness and its delightful sweetness enlivens our palate craving for more.

Suvernarekha variety of mangoes & Aam ki lassi

A classic Indian recipe prepared from ripe mango (known as aam in hindi and mamidipandu in telugu) and curd is Aam ki lassi otherwise called Mango yogurt smoothie. Its quick, easy to prepare and a meal by itself. I used Suvarnarekha variety from our backyard garden to prepare both aam ki lassi and mango milk shake.

Aam Ki Lassi Recipe

Preparation: 5-6 mts

Serves 4-5 persons

Cuisine: North

.

Ingredients:

1 1/2 cups ripe mango cubes

1 cup curd/yogurt

1 tbsp sugar or 2 tbsps honey (adjust according to the sweetness of mango)

1/2 cup water (add more water for a thinner consistency)

1/2 cup crushed ice cubes

mint leaves for garnish (optional)

1 Whip the above ingredients in a blender for a little less than a minute. Adjust the consistency of the smoothie according to the variety of mango used. If its a juicy variety, it will yield a thicker smoothie. Add more water and adjust sugar accordingly, for a thinner consistency lassi.
2Serve chilled, garnish with mint leaves.

Another very popular, warm weather quencher is, Mango milk shake. Prepared with minimum effort, it serves as a lazy summer meal or brunch and sure rejuvenates me on a hot day. With a strong mango flavor and undertones of cinnamom, its cool, refreshing and low on calories.:)

    Making mango shakes is almost everyone’s favorite thing to do when it is mango season. It is best made with original mangoes.
