Mango lassi
« on: September 16, 2013, 07:38 PM »
I know that many here prefer a strong lager or other beer with their curries, but as someone whose liver has issued its final public warning I prefer to err on the side of safety and drink either 0,5% German alkoholfrei beer (Clausthaler Extra Herb or Main Thaler) or Mango Lassi.  This summer I have been drinking about a litre of mango lassi a day, and I thought I might usefully share my recipe.

Needed :
  • One jug blender, capacity 1,5 to 1,7 litres.
  • Six to eight ice cubes.
  • 1/2 850gm tin TRS mango pulp (Kesar or Alphonso, the former is usually cheaper but tastes as good)
  • 1/2 1 litre carton Rubicon mango juice
  • 1 500 ml tub full fat Greek joghurt (Waitrose is my preferred one, and good value at

No alcohol? you could always try a bhang lassi.

I am a /very/ very sad individual, Fried.  I have never smoked, and never taken recreational drugs other than alcohol.  And at 66, I think it's probably too late to start now :)

I made this recipe last night and it is absolutely superb. I challenge anyone to come up with a better recipe for mango lassi. I noted that someone adds tamarind fruit to mango lassi, so perhaps I will try that but, really, Phil's recipe is so good that I'm reluctant to tamper with it. Better than the BIRs.

Try using half yoghurt and half vanilla ice cream instead of just yoghurt. Even better I think, though arguably no longer a true lassi.

SS - thank you for your suggestion, which I look forward to trying. I'm after the most more-ish flavour, regardless of the authenticity.
