Make this delicious, creamy lassi with the best summer fruits – mangoes & peaches!
(This post has been updated in June 2017).
Who hasn’t heard of lassi? The Indian (Punjabi, to be exact) version of the quintessential milkshake. Lassi is a yogurt based drink, usually savory with a pinch of salt and may be spiced lightly with paprika, cumin or mint. But it is the sweeter cousin which is more popular in our home.
Lassi can be made with just yogurt, sweetener and sweet spices like this recipe for Cardamom Mint Lassi. For a more robust drink, it is common to add fresh cream or even butter in the mix. Lassi malaai maarke or lassi with cream is the traditional rustic Bollywood hero’s drink of choice!
In summer when mangoes are abundant, mango lassi is the way to go. And what if you add a luscious peach to the mix? Can I already say “Yum”! Lassi can be made with almost any fruit. It is basically a yogurt smoothie made with fresh, seasonal fruits.
This mango peach yogurt smoothie or lassi is great as a cool summer beverage, midmorning snack or even quick breakfast smoothie.
Please use fresh, ripe fruits for best results. But feel free to experiment with canned pulp or fruit too.
