Mango Lassi Pops

This pop is inspired by sweet, cooling lassi — my favorite drink to have with Indian food.

Ingredients

  • 2 ½ cups cubed mango (from about 1 pound of fruit)
  • ¾ cup plain whole-milk yogurt
  • ¼ cup sugar
  • 1-2 teaspoons freshly squeezed lime juice
  • ¼ teaspoon ground cardamom
  • 6–8 thinly sliced lime wheels (optional)

Directions

In a blender, purée the mango, yogurt, sugar, 1 teaspoon of the lime juice, and the cardamom until smooth and creamy. Taste and add more lime juice if necessary.

Spoon the mixture into ice pop molds. Slice in the lime slices (if using) and insert sticks. Freeze until firm, at least 6 hours or up to 1 week.

To unmold the pops, run hot water over the outsides of the molds for a  few seconds, then gently pull the sticks.

Mango Lassi Shopping Tip

Indian food is loaded with many herbs and spices. Make sure you have a stocked spice cabinet and a big appetite.

Mango Lassi Cooking Tip

As delicious as Indian food is, the smells are strong and they linger. Make sure to have your stove vents running and a window open if you don't want your furniture to smell like spices for a week.
