Turmeric lassi

If you have eaten at an Indian restaurant you might have noticed a drink of yogurt and fruit. Lassi is commonly used to cool the mouth and throat after eating spicy food of the Indian subcontinent.

It is usually just a mix of yogurt and fruit with maybe a few spices for flavor. Mango lassi is very common. It has a tangy bite from the yogurt and sweetness from the fruit. It’s very filling.

Turmeric Lassi

2 cups yogurt
2 ripe bananas
2 tsp graded ginger
2 tsp honey
Juice of half a lemon
1 tsp vanilla
3 tsp ground turmeric
4 ice cubes

Blend all ingredients in a blender until smooth. Add more yogurt as needed. Serve in large glasses with a sprinkle of turmeric on top!


I used the yogurt which I had in the refrigerator, a strawberry Greek yogurt. It had a wonderful banana-strawberry flavor with the tang of the Greek yogurt.

  2. I make a mango lassi – just add one mango (peeled), I use cardamom ~ I’ll have to try the turmeric.
