Mango Lassi Pie

Inspired by a lassi, India's version of a yogurt-based fruit smoothie, this healthy frozen pie recipe gets flavor from a generous amount of cardamom and lime zest. Look for the ripest Ataulfo mangoes, sometimes called champagne or honey mangoes, because they're less fibrous and more flavorful than the more common Tommy Atkins variety. Top this healthy dessert with a dollop of whipped cream if you like.

Nutrition Profile:



  • 1 ¼ cups graham cracker crumbs (about 10 whole crackers)

  • 4 tablespoons unsalted butter, melted

  • 1 tablespoon granulated sugar

  • ½ teaspoon kosher salt

  • ¼ teaspoon lime zest


  • 1 pound chopped ripe mango, fresh or frozen (about 3 cups; thawed and drained, if frozen), plus more for garnish

  • 1 cup low-fat plain Greek yogurt

  • ¾ cup reduced-fat cream cheese

  • ½ cup honey

  • 1 teaspoon lime zest, plus more for garnish

  • 1 tablespoon lime juice

  • ¾ teaspoon ground cardamom

  • Pinch of salt


  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Coat a 9-inch pie pan (not deep-dish) with cooking spray.

  2. To prepare crust: Combine graham cracker crumbs, butter, sugar, 1/2 teaspoon salt and 1/4 teaspoon lime zest in a large bowl. Press evenly into the bottom and up the sides of the prepared pan. Bake the crust until golden brown, 10 to 15 minutes. Let cool completely on a wire rack.

  3. To prepare filling: Puree mango in a food processor until smooth. Strain through a fine-mesh sieve to remove any fibrous bits. Return the puree to the food processor and add yogurt, cream cheese, honey, lime zest and juice, cardamom and salt. Puree until very smooth. Scrape the filling into the cooled crust.

  4. Freeze the pie until firm, about 12 hours. Once frozen, loosely cover with plastic wrap and freeze for up to 5 days.

  5. To serve, let the pie stand at room temperature for about 30 minutes before slicing. Garnish with diced fresh mango and/or lime zest, if desired.


To make ahead: Freeze, loosely covered, for up to 5 days.

Equipment: 9-inch pie pan (not deep-dish)

Nutrition information is calculated by a registered dietitian using an ingredient database but should be considered an estimate.

* Daily Values (DVs) are the recommended amounts of nutrients to consume each day. Percent Daily Value (%DV) found on nutrition labels tells you how much a serving of a particular food or recipe contributes to each of those total recommended amounts. Per the Food and Drug Administration (FDA), the daily value is based on a standard 2,000 calorie diet. Depending on your calorie needs or if you have a health condition, you may need more or less of particular nutrients. (For example, it’s recommended that people following a heart-healthy diet eat less sodium on a daily basis compared to those following a standard diet.)
