This mango lassi bowl makes a healthy & refreshing breakfast and takes minutes to prepare. It can easily be made plant based/dairy free too.

Mango lassi is traditionally a cooling and refreshing drink. I really struggle to drink anything resembling a smoothie though. However, if made slightly thicker and eaten with a spoon, I can enjoy it! So that was how this mango lassi recipe in bowl form came about.

The recipe for this mango lassi bowl could not be more simple:
Blend mango, yogurt, ice cubes, a pinch of spices and a squeeze of lime until smooth.
You can make it even simpler by just blending the mango with yogurt and a pinch of cinnamon if you are after a really quick breakfast! If you are after an easy vegan breakfast then it can easily be adapted by using dairy free yogurt and milk.
I also love making it for a snack, especially in the summer months, as a healthier alternative to ice cream.

The sweetener is optional, and I would suggest/urge you look for ripe sweet mangoes and then you shouldn’t need any sweetener. Blend the lassi and have a taste before adding the maple syrup or honey.

The spices are also optional but I love cinnamon, and it is loaded with powerful antioxidants and has anti-inflammatory properties, so is an especially wonderful ingredient if you are following an anti-inflammatory diet.
Turmeric is also anti-inflammatory and can help digestive disorders. It also gives things a wonderful colour, and so heightens the yellow of this lassi (which is especially good if you have happened to have picked a pale mango, which I have done on occasions).

Make this Mango Lassi into a drink

Just add a little water or milk of choice to thin it.

Serving Ideas for the Mango Lassi Bowl

Top with slices of mango and a couple of fresh mint leaves
If you want to add a little crunch, add some granola (this plant based recipe for healthy granola goes very well).
Sprinkle over some seeds – chia, or linseeds
Add a spoonful of activated buckwheat groats (the picture above has buckwheat groats and chia seeds)

Make it your Mango Lassi Bowl:

Dairy free: use a dairy free yogurt and milk/water to thin
Vegan/plant based: use dairy free yogurt, thin with dairy free milk or water & sweeten with maple syrup, if needed.
3 ingredients: mango, yogurt and a pinch of cinnamon makes a delicious bowl.
Don’t like cinnamon:  add a pinch of cardamom

  1. This sounds really simple and delicious, for breakfast or a snack. We make something similar but as a mango smoothie, with the addition of some milk. I love adding cinnamon to fruit milkshakes, I feel it really lifts the fruity taste profile!

    1. Thank you Katerina, yes I feel the same about cinnamon – I have only just discovered it but will be adding it to a lot of fruit dishes in the future!
