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

Perfect treat! Simple, fast, and very tasty. Plus...now I won't feel 'guilted' into getting out everything to make banana bread every time I find myself with a couple of overripe bananas. So, thank you for that! Read More
