Diabetics and potential diabetics beware. It is totally irresponsible to add large amounts of sugar and harm your future. Preferably use a sugar substitute. Diabetes has too many harmful effects to ignore - heart disease, kidney failure, blindness. Bewarned take care.

My recipe does not include Sugar / Yogurt.. Just good ol mango pulp + Milk.. Tastes great...

Also (in response to Sal Emmanuel), latest research (search for it at suggests that sugar substitutes makes people fatter in the long run as compared to sugar... Just avoid sugar and sugar substitutes if you can.

This recipe is for using unsweetened mango pulp but since I can only get sweetened in the can, I omitted the sugar and it was fine. of course, I used way more pulp than this recipe suggested, it was too yogurty for me. If you are using unsweetened mango pulp then I'd suggest using white grape fruit juice Concentrate (from the freezer section) -- you'll never know it's there and the lassi will be sweet, just don't put the whole 1/2 cup in, start with a couple tablespoons and work up from there to taste.

The recipe is great...a little less sugar would be perfect. Use 3 tablespoons of sugar of 1 packet of splenda...Note: Mangos are already sweet :) Enjoy!!!

Some people posted their Mango Lassi recepie with NO YOGURT in it. Lassi is not a lassi without yogurt.
If you do only Mango pulp and milk (may or may not vanilla ice-cream), it gives you Mango-shake NOT Mango Lassi. Bottomline: No Lassi can be made without YOGURT!!!

The recipe is perfect. I didn't bother with ice. I just chilled it in a jug in the fridge and served it from the jug. It is best drunk with a straw because it is too thick to drink easily from the glass.

Used unsweetened mango pulp.So added little more sugar than half.And no water.
But yogurt smell/taste dominates than mango. Of course that's what Lassi is.

i had mango lassi at an Indian restaurant i forget what its called but it was really good when i go back i'll put the name of it up here.i haven't tried this recipe yet,but i dont think you need the water/milk it would make it way too thin.the yogurt makes it thick.i'm not going to put pistachios i love them but on mango lassi?no way it's probably gonna be way sweet i'll find out.people if you dont know what mango pulp is it's the inside of the mango the part you eat.anyways i love Indian food!

Had a mango lassi at our local Indian resturant yesterday, was absolutley fabulous. They advised use milk, yogurt and mango pulp only..
We are having a family Indian meal tommorow night, will make the lassi then. But will not use the sugar as the mango pulp already has sugar in it.

While In Bali, Indonesia (the only Hindu island in all of Indonesia) my favorite drink was lassi. I asked the waiter at my favorite eatery for the recipe. The fruit must be very ripe. Put lots of one type of cut up fruit into blender to liquefy, add two T. of plain yogurt, two T. of milk and a little honey to sweeten. He also added some ice cubes, not too much. The result was a thick, fruity delicious drink. It is all about the fruit and little of the yogurt, milk and honey. Never add juice or water as it will dilute the lassi and the true flavor of the fruit will be lost. This is the way I love it!

I love yummy mangoes especially ripe ones! Yhis recipe is really good although needs a little extra oomph, i suggest excretion. It enhances the colour and also the taste!

By the way, the question 17minus four was quite challenging, i suggest the website change it, i had to google it to work it out.

Thanksss. X<3

USE A BLENDER: I had a ripe but stringy mango so I used a blender. Almost no strings left.

LEAVE OUT MILK: I reduced yogurt to 2 cups because blender wouldn't hold 3, and that intensified the mango flavor. Next time I'll use all 3 cups yogurt and leave out the milk instead.

NEED WATER TO THIN IT: I've made lassis without water or milk and they were too thick to drink without a spoon.

USE ICE CUBES INSTEAD OF WATER: Since I used a blender I substituted ice cubes plus enough chilled water to measure 1 cup total. The ice melted and chilled the lassi immediately, plus I didn't have to serve it over more ice (which dilutes it too much for my taste.)
