Lemongrass, Coconut + Mango Lassi

Coconut, Lemongrass, Mango Lassi fingerforkknife.com

As we charge through life working hard, moving house, coupling up, socialising with friends, raising little bubs, weeding the front garden, paying bills, and doing all the other little things that make up our extraordinary-ordinary everyday lives, it’s very easy to discount the importance of the foods we choose to nourish our bodies. I consider food and the joy that comes with eating and sharing food essential to a natural and healthy mind and body.

This lassi is full to the brim with ingredients that can give your immune system and body a super health boost. It also happens to be quite delicious.

1. Lightly bash the lemongrass stem with the handle of your knife, or another blunt kitchen object, add this to a saucepan along with coconut milk. Bring coconut milk to the boil and then turn off the heat. Set aside for 20-30 minutes for the milk to cool and the lemongrass to infuse its flavour.

2. Add cooled lemongrass-infused milk and all ingredients to a blender and whiz until smooth. Add more yoghurt if you prefer. Taste and adjust to your liking.

3. Serve in glasses topped with a pinch of saffron threads, a drizzle of coconut milk and a spoon.

SERVES 2-4

  1. I tried a lassi for the first time 20 years ago in the old Stone Town in Zanzibar and became an immediate fan but have never thought of making it for myself at home…thanks so much for sharing the recipe!

  2. I would have never thought of incorporating the flavour of lemongrass into a lassi – but now I am very intrigued! This sounds so deliciously tropical, a perfect way to use up all of the mangoes in my fridge.

  3. This looks delicious, I shall definitely have a go at making these. Turmeric is so very healthy and an excellent anti inflammatory, after this whole month of indulgence, a tasty, healthy drink is muchy needed!

  4. Great recipe! Will definitely try it out! I also love your website logo! So classy and creative! Keep up the good work! Your website will probably become my favorite source for recipes! ;-)
