Vegan Mango Lassi
Vegan Mango Lassi

Here in Colorado we’re rapidly entering the dog days of summer – and it’s hot, hot, HOT outside. And when the weather gets this warm, we love to cool off with a refreshing chilled beverage. That’s where this recipe comes in!

Our Vegan Mango Lassi is a dairy-free spin on the traditional drink you know from your local Indian restaurant. 

This recipe is a great alternative for those who are sensitive to dairy or vegan, since yogurt is the main ingredient in a traditional mango lassi. We like to use homemade coconut or cashew milk in ours, but you can use any non-dairy milk (think hemp, almond, or even macadamia nut). 

This refreshing drink also packs some serious nutritional benefits. Mangos are a great source of prebiotic dietary fiber to keep your gut biome healthy and fed. This sweet tropical fruit is also an excellent source of vitamin C, good source of vitamins A and B6, high in antioxidants, and is a good source of potassium. 

If you’re looking for a more festive drink, you can easily make our vegan mango lassi into a Conscious Cocktail by adding your favorite light, dark, or spiced rum for a tropical drink that brings the beach to your backyard.

We hope you enjoy this cooling, tropical beverage! Do you have a favorite summer recipe you’d like us to give a conscious makeover? Let us know in the comments below!

With love and vegan lassi,
