This passion fruit, mango, and mint lassi with its tropical flavor will have you dreaming of summer, being on a beach somewhere. It has only a handful of ingredients and takes minutes to whip up.
I haven’t been out in the garden for a few weeks and was really surprised at how well the herbs and passion fruit vines are doing. The mint has overgrown the garden box even though we’re only a few weeks into spring. The passion fruit vines made it through winter with lots of fruits ready to be picked, over 10 pounds to be exact! We made lots of drinks and smoothies with this passion fruit, mango, and mint lassi on regular rotation. Lassi is a popular yogurt-based drink from India and Pakistan. It can either be savory or sweet, but we prefer the latter.
Lassi essential ingredients
This lassi has only a handful of ingredients: passion fruit, mango, mint, Greek yogurt, and nut milk.
Passion fruit: We grow passion fruit so we have fresh ones available most of the time. If you're from San Diego, they're available at the local farmers markets, Specialty Produce, and Sprouts. Frozen pulp is a great alternative.
Mango: We love champagne mango. They tend to be sweet and not as fibrous, making better smoothies.
Mint: We use regular garden mint. Just a few leaves go a long way.
Yogurt: Greek yogurt is our go to. If you're allergic to dairy, non-dairy yogurt will also work.
Nut milk: Coconut milk is my favorite to use for this lassi since the creamy taste of coconut milk complements the tropical flavor of this lassi. You can substitute with other nut milks or regular milk.
This lassi is incredibly refreshing, especially during a hot day. Both the passion fruit and mint give this sweet drink a kick and it totally hits the spot when you’re craving for something sweet. This passion fruit, mango, and mint lassi with its tropical flavor will have you dreaming of summer, being on a beach somewhere. We’ll often whip up this lassi as a way to end a heavy meal instead of indulging in sugary desserts.
