Dairy-free Mango Lassi

Daily Smoothie: Dairy-free Mango Lassi

Little Miss Katie and I love our morning smoothies. It’s a light way to start out the morning, and an easy way to make a quick breakfast before your eyes are open.

This is my nod to the mango lassi.

Dairy-Free Mango Lassi


  • 1 handful washed raw spinach, cooked and cooled if you don't tolerate raw greens
  • 1 avocado
  • 1 mango, peeled and diced
  • 1 Tablespoon raw honey
  • spices: dash cinnamon, dash cardamom
  • pinch unrefined salt
  • 1 cup water or coconut milk, more or less depending on water content of previous ingredients and preference


  1. Toss all ingredients into blender (here's my favorite) and blend until smooth.
  2. Pour and enjoy.

  • Jennifer, curious as to what the cardamom is for and why you need it? Does it have a nutritive property? Or purely for taste preference?

    Thanks for the recipe, will definitely try it!


    • Cardamom is an Indian spice and is added for flavor. You can usually pick it up in the spice aisle or buy it on Amazon here: http://amzn.to/1b7JiS2. Such a small amount in the recipe doesn’t contain much in the way of nutrients, but adds a nice spicy, smoky, citrusy flavor. It’s hard to explain but is super yummy. It traditionally flavors a mango lassi, so that’s why it’s used here.

      Cardamom does contain many health properties. A quick Google search will provide you with some pretty interesting info on it!
