Healthy Vegan Mango Smoothie, Lassi Style
If you love mango lassi but want to cut the sugar and dairy, this healthy mango smoothie is for you! It's vegan, uses dairy free yogurt, and instead of mango pulp or nectar, it uses the real thing! Sweetened with dates and coconut water (if needed) it's a healthier alternative to a restaurant favorite.
- 3/4 cup frozen mango
- 3/4 cup dairy free yogurt (I use homemade almond milk yogurt)
- 1/4 tsp cardamom powder
- 2 dates, pitted
- 1/2 cup dairy-free milk or coconut water
Add all the ingredients to a blender except the coconut water.
Blend until smooth. If it's too thick or not enough liquid to blend, add coconut water or milk in parts until it blends smooth. Usually it takes about 1/2 cup to get it smooth.
If using fresh mango versus frozen, you will need less milk or coconut water.
Sprinkle some cardamom or crushed pistachios over top and serve cold.
