    Mango Lassi Fool with Cardamom

    This creamy and refreshing scented dessert is based on lassi, a popular chilled yogurt drink in India. Serve ice-cold as the perfect end to a spicy meal.

    • Vegetarian
    • Preparation time: 20 minutes
    • Total time: 20 minutes 20 minutes

    Serves: 6


    • 4 cardamom pods
    • 4 Waitrose Perfectly Ripe Mangoes, peeled and roughly chopped
    • 284ml carton double cream
    • 500g pot natural yogurt
    • Finely grated zest and juice of 1 lime
    • 2 tbsp clear honey
    • ½ x 100g pack dried mango (from the fruit and vegetable section), cut into strips


    1. Place 6 large serving glasses in the fridge to chill. Remove the cardamom seeds from the pods and crush lightly using a pestle and mortar, or the end of a rolling pin in a small bowl.
    2. Purée the fresh mango pieces in a food processor until smooth, then set aside. In a large bowl, whisk the double cream until softly whipped and starting to hold its shape. Stir in the yogurt and continue to whisk until slightly thickened.
    3. Using a metal spoon, fold the lime juice and zest, crushed cardamom seeds and honey into the yogurt and cream mixture. Gently stir in the mango pulp to form ripples.
    4. Spoon the mixture into the chilled glasses and serve decorated with strips of dried mango.

    Cook's tips

    Make a day ahead and keep chilled to allow the flavours to develop. To serve the fools ice-cold, pop them in the freezer for 15 minutes before serving. Use tinned mango instead of fresh, if you prefer.
