Inside the campus where I studied in the PH was the International Center–a dormitory for international students. Across the IC was an arcade (now defunct) with a restaurant owned by an enterprising Pakistani student–and that’s where I first tasted lassi. It was out-of-this-world! But my tastebuds said it’s just yogurt, milk, sugar and fruit–so that’s how I’ve been making it since! Recently I asked my friend “A” if I’ve been doing it right, and she said “Yes!”
4 heaping tablespoons of natural yogurt (I actually used a serving spoon)
1/2 tbsp sugar
1 banana (you can also opt for other fruits)
milk to top up (i.e., to make a glass)
1. Blend yogurt, sugar and banana in a food processor.
2. Add milk and blend again.
3. Pour into a glass and serve.
