Seasonal Fruit Lassi

Posted by Courtney Schupp | March 2, 2022

Prep time: 10 minutes | Servings: 2


  • 2 ripe peaches, mangoes or any fresh seasonal fruit
  • 1 cup low-fat plain yogurt
  • 1 cup ice cubes OR 1/2 cup cold water
  • 1 tablespoon honey
  • Mint leaves (optional)

Live Well Tips

  • “Lassi” is the regional name for buttermilk and is a common dairy based drink in India and Pakistan.
  • Many countries drink a salted version with no fruit.
  • Substitute any fresh fruit with 2 cups of frozen fruit (just skip the ice).
  • Low-fat dairy products are an awesome way to get calcium without the saturated fat!


  1. Cut the fruit in half, remove and discard the seed (pits), peel, and chop them (you should have about 1½ cup).
  2. Put the fruit and the rest of the ingredients in the blender and cap tightly.
  3. Turn the blender to medium to start chopping the fruit and ice. Adjust the blender to high speed and blend until the mixture is really smooth and moves easily in the blender, about one minute.
  4. Serve right away, or cover and refrigerate up to 24 hours (if you do this, stir it well or blend again before serving).
  5. Garnish with a few cubes of fruit and mint leaves
