This mango lassi inspired drink is absolutely delightful – smooth, creamy, sweet, with a hint of tartness. Guaranteed to make you happy.

Silky, ripe mangoes and a combination of creamy milk (please use vegan milk) are the keys to getting the decadent texture of this drink just right. You can use any non-dairy milk in this recipe, or you can use raw cashews to make it into a delicious vegan mango lassi sensation.

Mango is actually a good substitute for bananas in smoothies. It’s just as sweet and creamy and many people actually much prefer the taste of it to bananas.

Both these mango drink recipes are gluten-free, dairy-free, vegan, vegetarian, soy-free, using five ingredients or less.
