Strawberry Banana and Mango Lassi

Lassi is a refreshing, cool and traditional yogurt (Dahi) based Indian drink. I Love Lassi for my afternoon snack and breakfast especially during hot summer days. Strawberry, Banana and Mango lassi is very refreshing, healthy, colorful, delicious, filling and nutritious drink.

Serving: 3-4
total time: under 15 minutes

I used saffron which gives an elegant flavor to this lassi. In this recipe, first I blended strawberries with sugar and keep it aside. Then blended all the ingredients together till smooth. To serve, I poured 2-3 tablespoon of strawberry mixture into the glass and then added Mango-Banana mixture on top of strawberry mixture and garnished with few pieces of strawberry and mango.

  • 1 ripe Mango skinned and cubed
  • 1 ripe Banana skinned and roughly sliced
  • 7-8 Fresh Strawberries (Cut into Pieces)
  • 3-4 tablespoon honey or sugar (add according to ripeness of mango)
  • 2 cups of Plain yogurt (homemade or store brought)
  • 1/2 cup of chilled milk 
  • pinch of saffron
  • 1/2 teaspoon of crushed green cardamom (optional) 
  • 5-6 Ice cubes
  1. Take Strawberry pieces into blender and add 1-2 tablespoon sugar and 1 tablespoon water and blend till smooth. Keep some strawberry and mango pieces keep aside for garnishing.
  2. Pour 2-3 tablespoon of this mixture into glasses, at the bottom.
  3. Next Blend Mango Pieces, Banana slices, Yogurt (Dahi), chilled milk, sugar or honey, saffron, cardamom powder and Ice-cubes together till smooth.
  4. Pour this lassi into the glasses with strawberry mixture. So that beautiful layers get formed in the glasses.
  5. Garnish with strawberry and mango pieces on top of the lassi and serve immediately.
  • You can also add one teaspoon of ground flax seed to add good Omega-3 fatty acids.
  • If you have extra lassi then pour it into popsicle's mold and freeze them.
