  • Cook Time: 5
  • Total Time: 10 minutes
  • Yield: 2 1x
  • Cuisine: Indian


  • 150mls mango pulp (or the flesh of one mango, preferably Alphonso)
  • 2 cardamom pods crushed and seeds extracted
  • 5 tbs Greek yoghurt
  • 200mls milk
  • 1 tbs honey
  • 1 tbsp unsalted pistachio nuts (without shells) (optional)


  • Place all your ingredients (except for the pistachio nuts) into a blender, and whizz up until you have a thick creamy consistency
  • Add more honey if you want a sweeter flavour and whizz again
  • Roughly chop the pistachio seeds
  • Pour mango mixture into a glass, garnish with the pistachio seeds and enjoy!


  • I use mango pulp and fresh mangoes for my mango lassi.  You can find large tins of mango pulp in Asian greengrocers.
  • If you want a more tart flavour, add a squeeze of lime
