Who doesn't like a mango lassi, right? But when you don't have good fresh mangos or can't find mango puree, why not try a banana lassi? I ordered 2 in a restaurant in Udaipur because they were so good and it was because they had no mangos at the time -- what a find!

Cook's Notes:

The servings are small in comparison to restaurants outside of India, but I think it's probably a good idea to consume smaller amounts of good active bacteria in yogurt.

Substitute honey for sugar, if desired.

Use good strong-flavored yogurt: it makes all the difference. Milk is just to get things moving, so you can adjust to preferred taste/texture.

Used a combo of vanilla and plain Greek yogurt and didn't feel the need for the sugar for our tastes so I omitted it. A lassi is very similar to a smoothie and I must admit that I love them. I've tried many different smoothies and a few lassis on this site and I think this is one of the easiest and the best perhaps because of its simplicity. It's just pure banana flavor with a little tang from the yogurt. Very very nice! Read More

WOW! Loved it. I just got banana on sale and printed this and made it. Great. I was too lazy to get the sugar out of the cabinet so I put in 2 packets of truvia. Amazing. Very fast to make. Will make it again and often, great way to use up bananas. Thanks Read More

This was excellent and I recommend trying it! I scaled this down to one serving using a container of plain Greek yogurt and one vanilla Activia yogurt. After I tasted it I found that no additional sugar was needed. My banana was quite small so the lassi had a subtle banana taste which I think I enjoyed more and a nice tang from the yogurts. Thanks for this delicious lassi recipe Ivy! Read More

Looking for someway to use overripe bananas I came across this recipe. Made some alterations in the interests of time I.e. made one serving using 1 banana 1/2 c 2tbsp Dannon Lit & Fit Greek style vanilla yogurt(since I had it on hand) no sweetener about 1/2c skimmed milk pinch of nutmeg & 5 ice cubes. About 45 sec in my Nutribullet made a great tasting smoothly. Nice diet lunch on a hot summer day. Read More
