• 1 cup loosely packed mint leaves
  • 2 cups plain yogurt – whole milk yields the most “drinkable” lassi since it doesn’t contain any thickeners, but low-fat and non-fat yogurt work fine, too
  • 2 Tbsp. sugar, honey, or agave syrup – plus more to taste
  • 1 tsp. lime or lemon juice – plus more to taste


  1. Put mint, yogurt, sweetener, and lime juice in a blender.
  2. Whirl until smooth.
  3. Taste and add more sweetener or lime juice, if you like.
  4. Pour into glasses and serve. The key to a great cool Lassi is to make sure all ingredients are cold.
