Frozen mango lassi

What a beautifully simple recipe: simply throw everything in a blender and blitz, churn or freeze. You can even eat this straight away, as a thick smoothie! However you make it, you'll get a brilliant blast of tropical flavours that's perfect for sunny summer days.

The vodka is optional, or you can use white rum or, better still, coconut rum. Its purpose is to prevent the mixture from freezing solid, not for flavour, so it's okay to leave it out completely if you're serving this to kids!



450g frozen mango chunks

400g full-fat coconut yogurt

Zest of 1 lime

6 cardamom pods, bashed to release the seeds

1 tbsp vodka (optional)

1-2 tbsp brown rice syrup (optional)


  1. Place everything apart from the cardamom pods in a high-powered blender, omitting the vodka if you're serving to children, and adding the brown rice syrup if you like your lassi a bit sweeter. Blitz until silky smooth.
  2. Empty into a freezer container or loaf tin, cover the top with parchment, then wrap in cling film. Place in the freezer for 2-4 hours, removing from the freezer 15 mins before serving to soften slightly.
