Kesar Mango Lassi Recipe – Creamy, rich and refreshing traditional Indian sweet drink made with yogurt, mangoes, cardamom, saffron and nuts.
What is Kesar Mango Lassi?
Mango lassi is a traditional sweet drink made in Indian and Pakistan. It is made with fresh and thick yogurt, fresh mango and is flavored with cardamom and saffron. The consistency of the Indian mango lassi is very similar to a smoothie. It is one of the world’s popular Indian recipes.
We make so many Indian mango dishes when they are in season. Please check the below recipes if you need some of them.
You can also make this lassi into popsicles, check my Mango Lassi Popsicles Recipe.
Can I use canned mango pulp instead of fresh mangos?
You can use store-bought mango pulp in this recipe. Just use ½ cup of pulp instead of 1 cup of fresh mango cubes.
How to Make Vegan Mango Lassi?
Just replace the yogurt with any plant-based yogurt like almond milk yogurt or soy yogurt. Also, replace milk with a tablespoon of hot water to soak the saffron.
I love it when it is served on hot summer afternoons. It can also be served as a dessert, snack or breakfast.
