Vegan mango lassi without yogurt:
Lassi’s are very popular, traditional Indian beverages made by mixing fruits and spices with yogurt.
Mango lassi is probably one of the most popular ones. It’s made out of mangoes and yogurt.
The sweetness from the mango and the tartness from the yogurt gives it a very distinctive taste! It’s creamy, sweet, and tangy.
This mango lassi recipe requires 3 main ingredients, mango, soy milk, and lemon juice. The soy milk acts as a neutral base while the lemon juice adds the tartness that can be found in yogurt.
You can make mango lassi with a plant-based yogurt, but this recipe makes it easier for those who can’t get their hands on vegan yogurt easily.
How to make a vegan mango lassi:
Choose a ripe mango. You can use fresh or frozen mango as long as it’s ripe and sweet. If your mango isn’t sweet enough, you can eventually add agave syrup to sweeten your smoothie.
Peel your mango and chop into cubes.
Place your chopped mango, soy milk, and cardamom in a blender and blend.
Halfway through the blending process add the lemon juice, to avoid the soy milk from curdling. Blend until smooth and creamy.
Pour into a glass over ice cubes and enjoy!
