People always ask me for a recipe for Indian Yogurt Lassi. I mean, it’s not very complicated, but I realized it’s only easy if you’ve done it all your life. So I thought I’d post the recipe today. It’s embarrassingly simple, so to jazz it up I’ll show you several variations of Indian Yogurt Lassi, all of which are traditional.
Indian Yogurt Lassi & Lassi Variations
I know there some banging Avocado Lassie and Blood Orange lassi recipes out there, but neither of those fruits is widely available in India, so I’m not including things like that. Just the various ways I grew up drinking it.
One of the most popular versions is the Mango Lassi (pictured). It’s commonly found in India, and mango goes SO well with yogurt. It’s one of my favorite blends, and it’s super simple to make.
You can also make a delicious Papaya version. It includes papaya and cardamom for a rich flavor that has just the right amount of sweet from the fruit and spice from the cardamom.
I also included six more variations for you to try in the recipe below. Print it off and hang it on the fridge so you can try them all and choose your favorites. I love them all, so I can’t tell you which to try first. Which one will you make first?
