Banana Lassi Recipe - Sweet Lassi

Indian Fruit and yogurt drink

I love bananas and I love this banana Lassi Recipe. Banana lassi is a quick recipe. It is a very satisfying cool drink in the hot summer afternoon.

It can be served as a snack or along with or after dinner. It is a nutritious drink.

Whenever I have some excess ripe bananas, I use them to make this banana lassi. A slightly over ripe bananas also may be used.

Bananas are eaten by themselves or many deserts and sweets are made with ripe banana such as banana ice cream, banana burfi etc.

This banana lassie recipe is one such ripe banana recipe.

You may use fresh or frozen banana for this lassi.

There is no artificial flavor or color added to this. The banana you choose give it a natural flavor and color. So choose your banana with care. Select only ripe and sweet banana.

You may use homemade or store bought plain or vanilla flavored yogurt (curd - dahi).
