Avocado Lassi

Creamy Avocado Lassi

2 ripe avocados
1/2 cup plain or Greek-style yogurt
1 cup whole milk
2-3 tablespoons sugar, or to taste
4 green cardamom pods, seeds removed and crushed
1 tablespoon rosewater or gingery syrup (optional)

Slice the avocado in half, lengthwise. Remove the pit, peel and roughly chop. (See step-by-step instructions: 

Add the yogurt, milk, sugar, crushed cardamom seeds, and rosewater to the blender and process to a creamy consistency. Taste and sweeten more, if required.

This lassi can be made ahead and kept refrigerated. Serve chilled.

Recipe Notes

  • You can replace the yogurt and milk with soy or almond milk for a dairy free and vegan version.You may have to rub the avocados with a little lime juice, if making this version.
  • Honey can be used in place of sugar.
  • The rosewater adds a delicate floral note to the lassi, and I highly recommend adding some, if you have it.
  • Alternatively, ginger syrup is a delicious, spicy addition. I buy ginger syrup at my local Purdy’s (a chocolate shop), however, you can use syrup from jars of preserved ginger.
