Sweet Lassi

Ahh, Lassi- the ever popular drink of the Indian subcontinent.  Everyone has a favorite flavor, whether it be mango, cardamom, saffron, salty, or sweet.  The recipe I’m sharing today is a bare bones recipe.  It is totally customizable.  The yogurt can be full-fat, low-fat, or non-fat.  Greek yogurt, or even flavored yogurts, can be used instead of plain yogurt.  Any type of milk can be used, and it can even be replaced with juice.  Go ahead and let your imagination run wild! 🙂


Sweet Lassi

Yield:  1 Serving


  • ¾ cup yogurt
  • ¼ cup milk
  • 3 – 4 teaspoons sugar
  • A few ice cubes


Combine yogurt, milk, and sugar in the jar of a blender and pulse until the sugar has dissolved.  Pour in a glass and top with ice cubes.

Refrigerate any leftovers.

  1. I’ve never made lassi like this before. I’ve made mango lassi which I really like but my husband doesn’t b/c it uses tinned mango pulp. But my husband makes a really good lassi. Unfortunately he has no recipe and just makes it by andaaza…glad to have your recipe so I can make it myself b/c I am so not into andaaza….
