I love mango lassi’s. It’s practically sacrilege for me to go to an Indian restaurant and not order a mango lassi. Mangoes are my favorite fruit and on this blog you will find lots of smoothies that include mango not to mention jams that include mango, mango crabcakes and a variety of other mango recipes.

Surprisingly, I didn’t have mango lassi. So when I was perusing Sapana’s blog for a recipe for her surprise virtual baby shower from her Blogging Marathon friends, this was the recipe selected.

Do you love mangoes as much as me? Well then check out some of these other mango recipes!


I love Sapana’s version better than the restaurant version. The restaurant version is usually richer and thicker and is quite an indulgence. Hers felt lighter that I wouldn’t feel so guilty in indulging in more often. Also I am not sure the restaurant version always includes the cardamom and saffron as I found this version more flavorful as well.

  1. Thanks a lot Mirelle for this virtual baby shower . I am speechless and I don't have words to say. But Thank you for all your time and efforts to arrange this vritual treat.

  2. My son is also a big fan of mango lassi. It’s so easy to make at home when mangoes are in season. Cardamom pairs well with mangoes too.
