Lassis are an Indian drink which is usually accompanied with traditional fare. We love them because they’re a quick healthy way to use up fruit that is overripe or in abundance! You can use any fruit you like – plum is lovely, as is nectarine or even mango or banana. Get creative!
I use a hand held electric mixer for mine (I love my Bamix!) and the beaker that came with it but if you don’t have that, you could use a food processor or a blender if you don’t have one. This recipe could easily be made Vegan by using soy yogurt instead of cows milk.
So, into the blender/beaker, place:
- 4 ice cubes
- 1 peach, chopped up
- sprinkle of coconut sugar (about 1 tsp)
- 2 tbsp of yogurt
- 2 tsp Chia seeds (or even LSA would be fine here)
- 1/4 cup water
and blitz it! Til it’s a smooth consistency. Serve immediately with a sprig of mint.
Makes about 2 medium glasses or 4 small ones.
