If you love milkshakes, this is for you…
My golden lassi is like a frosty tropical milkshake, made with 100% healthy ingredients.
A lassi is a drink that’s made by blending yogurt with fruit and spices. You can easily make this vegan by using coconut yogurt (CocoYO and Harmless Harvest are my fave!) I also love to use my mom’s homemade yogurt that she makes from grass-fed organic milk. Whatever you do, make sure you choose an unsweetened plain organic yogurt to avoid dairy raised on drugs and GMO grains.
The star ingredient here is the fresh ginger. This is one very special ingredient that I eat almost every single day. Not only does it have a sweet and spicy taste that I love, but it’s great for the body and is a master at fighting inflammation. It’s a true superfood!
Making this lassi couldn’t be easier when you use frozen pineapple and mango that’s already chopped and ready to go. Simply add the fruit, yogurt, ginger, cardamom, and coconut milk to a blender and mix it for about one minute. Once it’s smooth, pour the lassi into two glasses and share with a friend!
Here’s the printable recipe. You’ll want to keep this one handy!

- ½ cup plain yogurt
- 1 tablespoon grated ginger root
