Prep time
Total time

Recipe type: Drinks
Cuisine: Indian
Serves: 1 serving
  • 1 cup plain white and unsweetened yogurt (I make my own with this recipe)
  • 2 large banana, peeled and sliced
  • pinch ground cardamom
  • cold water, optional see note*
  • honey to taste, optional
  • ice cubes, optional
  1. Peel and roughly slice the banana then place in a blender. Next add the yogurt, cardamom and the honey if using, blend until the banana is completely broken down and ingredients are well blended. At this time you can check the consistency of the Lassi and see if you would like to add water to thin out, then blend again for a minute.
  2. Serve straight away with a few ice cubes. Another way I’ve experimented is on a really hot summer day I use the ice cubes by adding them at the beginning of the blending so they break down and blend well with the other ingredients. This makes a very cold and refreshing lassi too.
*Note* You can add some cold water to thin out the lassi if you like and that’s if you are using full fat yogurt. But I suggest if you are using fat free or thinner yogurt that you skip the water or the lassi will be too watery.
