Growing up, mango lassis were one of my favorite to order when we ate out at Indian restaurants. The sweet mangoes, the tangy yogurt, and the hint of rose at the end of each sip…. oh so delicious! The fact that mangoes are my absolute favorite fruit just adds to my love for this lassi!
A summer time must have, even my girls look forward to having a glass almost daily which just makes my heart happy. Easy to whip up, you don’t need much. A blender and the ingredients are all you have to use. I did use a dash of rose syrup to give it a summer-y floral hint which takes this lassi to a whole new level.
Have this delicious mango lassi as an afternoon snack to cool down in the heat, or pair it with some delicious Indian food. It pairs well with Masala Omelette for breakfast, or even a lunch time drink with a Desi Masala Bowl or with dinner when you try out this Instant Pot Chole.
From my kitchen to yours, enjoy this delicious treat!

Mango is my absolute favorite in the whole world! Done. That’s it. If I were stuck on an island and there were mangoes, I would be set.
That being said, I think for my hubby, it would be salsa. Honestly, I’ve never seen a salsa that man has not devoured.
I love this mango salsa because it is so fresh, tangy, sweet, and spicy all at the same time! I’ve paired this the traditional way with chips, fish, tacos, fish tacos, as a dip during parties and more recently with Hawaiian chicken. There’s no wrong way to eat mango pico!
The mango pico that I made is very easy and simple but it packs a punch of flavor. I go a little heavy on the spice to balance the sweet of the mango and only 5 ingredients needed to make.
From my kitchen to yours, enjoy this recipe!
- 2 ripe mangos, diced
- ½ c onions, finely diced
- 3 Tbsp cilantro, chopped
- 2 serrano peppers, finely diced (take of out the seeds and ribs to cut down the spice)
- Juice of 1 lemon
- ¼ tsp salt
- pinch of black pepper
- In a bowl, mix together all of the ingredients and give it a good toss.
- Refrigerate for 15-20 minutes to let seasonings and flavor marinate.
This is the most perfect afternoon drink on a hot summer day. We’ve had temps in the high 90’s and low 100’s lately so we’ve been making ice cold drinks to stay cool. One of our favorite is this Tropical Fruit Smoothie. Though we can’t be in the tropics, the girls and I decided to bring the flavors of the tropics home. Continue reading “Tropical Fruit Smoothie”
My absolute favorite food on Earth is mangoes. I can’t think of a time that I didn’t like them. I love hearing stories from my mom about how I could go through a case (about 10-12 mangoes) in a sitting when I was a kid. Nowadays, I probably would end up with a tummy ache but I’m willing to give it a try. Continue reading “Mango Berry Bread Pudding Yum “
