What we love about this recipe

  1. Takes less than 10 minutes.
  2. It is a delicious take on Mango lassi and it is loaded with the goodness of banana, which is a good source of potassium.
  3. It is a perfect breakfast smoothie and makes for a great after-school snack too. 
  4. No sugar added – it’s sweetened by honey.
  5. When mangoes are not in season, you can substitute with frozen mangoes.  

This recipe calls for 5 ingredients – mango, bananas, milk, honey, and powdered green cardamom seeds (use only if you are a fan of this aromatic spice like I am)

Which kind of mango is best for this smoothie?

For smoothies, I prefer mangoes that are sweet and non-fibrous. If you are in India, Alphonso, or Kesar would be a good choice. For those in the US, buy either AtaulfoKent, or Keitt

Can we use store-bought mango pulp for this recipe?

You could, but I would suggest you get unsweetened mango pulp so that you can control the amount of sugar used in the recipe. One cup of mango pulp should be sufficient for this recipe.
