Before we dive into this No Yogurt Mango Lassi recipe, let’s talk about what exactly it is. Lassi is a yogurt-based drink blended with spices that originated from India. It’s typically consumed for breakfast or a snack during the summer. Lassi has Ayurvedic healing properties that center on a holistic approach to changing one’s diet, exercise, and lifestyle.
But this is a no yogurt vegan recipe, so we’re modifying some things a bit. Instead of using yogurt (which those on a low-histamine or no migraine diet might want to avoid), we’ll be using cottage cheese. We know that this cheese isn’t for everyone, but the blended texture combined with the sweetness of mangoes will result in a rich tangy breakfast. Also, cottage cheese has high protein content and is a great source of calcium. For a thinner consistency, add cold water little by little while blending. Another option for cottage cheese is coconut yogurt. You can find it in stores or make your own. The combination of mangoes and coconut yogurt is also a yummy treat!
Even with some changes, the essence of Ayurveda medicine is still present in the lassi since you’ll still be using the spice cardamom that can lower blood pressure and help improve breathing, especially during strenuous activities like exercise.
There are no sweeteners listed in this no yogurt mango lassi recipe, so we recommend picking ripe mangoes for natural sweetness. If the natural flavor of the mangoes isn’t enough for you, you can add maple syrup. Honey is also an option, but it depends on the principles of your diet. We recently came across the debate of using honey for the vegan diet. Some say that honey isn’t acceptable since it’s sourced from bees. But some say using honey is allowed as long as the harvesting is done in a humane process. It’s all really up to your preference.
This recipe only calls for 4 to 5 ingredients and will only take 5 minutes of your time, so add No Yogurt Mango Lassi to your breakfast list. You’ll be refreshed and energized for the day!
