In India they often drink lassi to accompany a meal. It’s easy to understand why, since it’s exactly what you need after a spicy curry. When we travelled around in India we tried at least a dozen different versions. Apart from the traditional salted lassi and smoothie-like fruit lassis, they also use more complex flavours like rose water, honey or saffron. We have combined a few of those flavours in our version. You can buy rosehip powder in most health food stores, if you can’t find it you could leave it out or use cinnamon instead.

Ingredients

Quantity Ingredient
350ml yoghurt
2 tablespoons honey
2 teaspoons rosehip powder
1 teaspoon bee pollen, (optional)
1/2 teaspoon freshly ground cardamom seeds
pinch salt
2 ice cubes

Method

  1. Combine all the ingredients in a blender with 120 ml water. Pulse until smooth, light and frothy. Taste and add more saffron if necessary. Pour into 2 large glasses and serve immediately.
