Sweet Lassi

Serves: 2 people

Difficulty: Easy

Lassis are a yoghurt drink originating from the northern state of Punjab. A perfect blend of yoghurt, water, salt or sugar and sometimes spices, blended until frothy. 

In India they churn it but you can use a blender or whisk. I love mine sweetened with fruit, which is a modern version. Traditionally they are sweetened with sugar syrup or delicately salted. And the best to be had is on the streets of Amritsar.


  • 8 tablespoons plain yoghurt
  • 150 ml chilled water
  • 1 teaspoon sugar, to taste
  • flesh of 1 ripe mango, chopped
  • 1 banana
  • pinch of ground cinnamon (optional)
  • crushed ice


1. Whizz all the ingredients together in a blender, or whisk together in a large jug. Add more water if you need to.

2. Taste and add more sugar. If your fruit is really ripe then you shouldn't need to.

3. Serve chilled.

Anjali's Tip: I love to make this recipe with the seeds of a pomegranate, and instead of the sugar I add a good squeeze of honey.
