Banana Lassi


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!

2 servings


  • 2 over-ripe bananas, broken into chunks

  • 1 ¼ cups thick plain yogurt

  • cup milk, or more to taste

  • 2 ice cubes

  • 2 tablespoons white sugar


  1. Blend bananas, yogurt, milk, ice cubes, and sugar together in a blender until smooth.

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.
