Prep time: 15 minutes

Freezing time: 4-6 hours

Serves: 2


·      Ripe mango, peeled and diced, (200g)

·      Unsweetened Greek yogurt (unsweetened), (150g)

·      Stevia or erythritol (or any preferred sugar substitute), 2-3 tbsp (adjust to taste)

·      Cardamom powder, ¼ tsp

·      A pinch of saffron strands (optional)

·      Chopped almonds or pistachios (for garnish), 1 tbsp


1.     In a blender, combine the diced mango, Greek yogurt, cardamom powder and saffron strands (if using). Blend until you achieve a smooth and creamy consistency.

2.    Taste the mixture and add the stevia or erythritol in small increments until you reach your desired level of sweetness. Blend again to get an even distribution of sweetness.

3.    Pour the mango lassi mixture into popsicle molds or an airtight container.

4.    Sprinkle chopped almonds or pistachios on top for added texture and nutty flavor.

5.    Place the molds or container in the freezer and let the ice cream set for 4-6 hours, or until it's firm.

6.    Once the ice cream is completely frozen, remove it from the molds or container. If using a container, scoop the ice cream into serving bowls.

7.    Garnish with a few more chopped nuts if desired, and serve.
