Sweet Peach Lassi


How can something so tasty be SO easy. Just throw it all in the blender, let it whirl and you have a a gorgeous lassi! This is what I made my boys for breakfast this morning. Peaches and a bit of honey sweeten the tangy yogurt. Pour it in beautiful little glasses you can serve it as dessert after an Indian feast or a light picnic on the patio.

The recipe comes from my friend Suvir’s book, Indian Home Cooking. I switched to peaches from his traditional mango and replaced the sugar with honey, otherwise it is all his! He and I will be teaching a class at Cooks of Crocus Hill on August 30th for any of you in the area who would like to join us. It will be a wonderful evening of his incredible food and I will be creating breads and sweets to match.

Lassi from Indian Home Cooking by Suvir Saran

Serves 4 to 6

3 cups plain yogurt  (I used whole milk yogurt but you can replace that with your favorite)

Juice of 1/2 lemon

2 ripe peaches (I washed them and left the skin on)

10 ice cubes

1/4 cup sugar (I used 4 tablespoons honey)


Put all the ingredients in the blender and process until frothy and the ice cubes are crushed into small pieces. Adjust the sweetness and serve in lovely glasses. Enjoy and we will hope to see some of you in class in August!
