Tangerine Mango Tango Dairy-Free Lassi

23

Traditional lassi is a savory blend of yogurt, water and spices most commonly found in South Asian. But over the years, sweet lassi made with fruit added has become popular throughout the world. It’s a thick drink by nature, but I like my dairy-free lassi to be on the spoonable side, more like a cool and creamy shake.

That said, if you would prefer more of a drinkable dairy-free lassi, use fresh fruit rather than frozen. For the spice, I chose the anti-inflammatory powers of organic turmeric, which adds to the brilliant hue, but doesn’t notably affect the taste. The pinch of pepper is merely to heighten the availability of turmeric’s good stuff. If you can’t imagine a mango lassi without cardamom, go ahead and add a sprinkle.

But I couldn’t stop with just a healthy spice boost, I also mixed in a touch of luxury via two teaspoons of nutritious omega-rich oils. I used Be Bright Non-GMO Superfood Oil Blend from Coromega, which is a tasty, lightly sweetened vegan mix of chia, organic coconut, organic avocado, organic hemp and organic black cumin oils. I had covered this product in Allergic Living Magazine after discovering it at Expo West, but this was my first time incorporating Be Bright into a recipe and it was delicious! Tony and I have been trying to increase our Omega 3 intake, and this definitely makes it easy.

And of course, what would a lassi be without probiotic-rich yogurt? Fortunately, there are some great options available for non-dairy, allergen-free and vegan eaters. I used So Delicious Unsweetened Cultured Coconut Milk. It only adds a light hint of coconut which only serves to enhance, rather than overtake the bright mango and tangerine flavors in this dairy-free lassi.

Note that the oil blend I used is lightly sweetened. If using another omega-rich oil or oil blend, ensure that your fruit is quite ripe and sweet and/or sweeten to taste, if needed.
Serves: 1 to 2 servings
Ingredients
Instructions
  1. Place all ingredients in your blender and puree until smooth. It will make a rather thick, creamy, spoonable chilled dessert.
  2. Pour into 1 or 2 glasses to serve.
Notes
*As mentioned, this makes a thick chiller. If you prefer a thinner or drinkable blend, use fresh fruit (rather than frozen) or thin with additional tangerine juice.

    What a gorgeous mango lassi! I love that you used coconut milk yogurt!
    Yummm!
    Pinned!

  2. I have no major food allergies. After weight-loss surgery, I have several intolerances. I have become suspicious that my daughter might have a minor allergy or intolerance to dairy. I am not a doctor, so I could be wrong. I just want to play with her dairy intake and see if there is a positive change. Her father’s side of the family has some dairy intolerances, so she might have inherited them. She loves lassi’s. Gets them every time we go to the Indian restaurant, so I will have to give this non-dairy version a try. Thanks for the recipe

    • Hi Michelle,

      I didn’t realize that could be a side effect of that type of surgery – interesting and definitely not good! I hope that both you and your daughter find some good eats that don’t cause havoc – and that she enjoys the lassi 🙂

  3. I used to use coromega fish oil… great to see they have a vegan blend, I may have to give it a try! this lassi sounds VERY good! I’m with you, I like a drinkable lassi 🙂
