The Lassi juice is a popular and traditional drink from Bangladesh, India, and Pakistan. It is a blend of yogurt and spices or sometimes it is mixed with fruits.
It is the perfect refreshing cooler for a hot day in summer, so I send you a bit of Zen attitude all the way from Turkey, Kemer, as I’m on vacay right now.
You can add more or less yogurt or orange juice for a thicker or thinner beverage. I added the honey for extra sweetness, no need for sugar. One idea I just got, if you want ice in your drink, then, I advise you to turn the orange juice into ice cubes and grind them in the blender along with the fruits!
Don’t think twice to try this recipe, I bet you have plenty of fruits in your fridge this time of the year!—you can also make your own Lassi knowing you have to add orange juice and yogurt.
Serves 2 person
1 mango peeled and diced
1 mango for decoration
1 peach sliced
1 cup of orange juice
1 cup of yogurt
1 tbsp of honey
Cookware and Cutlery:
A blender or electric mixer
2 tall glasses
Wash all the fruits.
Cut the mango in three parts 1 cm away from the center in order to avoid the pit.
Cut parallel slices into the mango flesh, being careful not to cut through the skin. Turn the mango cheek and cut another set of parallel slices to make a checkerboard pattern. Turn the scored mango cheek inside out by pushing the skin up from underneath, and scrape the mango chunks off of the skin with a knife.
Slice the peach into small parts and add all the fruits in the blender with the orange juice. Add the yogurt.
Tip for decoration: You can add a strawberry and a piece of peach on the rim of the glass!
