Description

A sweet, creamy, and refreshing beverage inspired in the iconic Indian mango lassi, except it tastes like banana and is totally vegan-friendly!


Ingredients

Units Scale
  • 2 frozen bananas
  • 1 cup non-dairy yogurt
  • 1/4 cup unsweetened non-dairy milk
  • 2 seedless dates
  • 1/2 tsp ground cinnamon

Instructions

  1. In a blender, add all the ingredients. Blend everything on high speed until it’s smooth and creamy.
  2. Taste the lassi and add more sweetener, if necessary.
  3. If you find the lassi too thick, slowly add non-dairy milk or ice, until you get the desired consistency. If it’s too runny, add more non-dairy yogurt.
  4. Pour the vegan banana lassi into a glass and enjoy!
  5. Sprinkle some cinnamon on top for an extra woody flavor. (Optional)

Notes

  • If you’re in a hurry, with no opportunity to freeze bananas overnight, use 2 ripe bananas and then add the ice separately. I recommend blending slowly as you add the ice to ensure consistency.
  • Speaking of consistency, it’s something that people often complain about when making any lassi. More often than not, you may end up with a thick consistency that makes it difficult to drink, particularly with a straw. If that’s the case, feel free to add more non-dairy milk or even ice to the blender.
  • However, if you feel like the consistency is too runny, you should add more non-dairy yogurt. Experiment and see what’s best for you.
