Passion fruit Lassi

Preparation time: 10 minutes
Serves: 2
Passion fruit pulp – ¼ cup, or 2 fruits
Chilled fresh curds – 1.5 cup
Water – ¼ cup
Sugar/ honey –2 tsp, adjust to taste
Salt – a pinch(optional), I don’t use it

  • Initially, prepare the passion fruit juice. To make it, cut the fruit. Scoop out the pulp into a mixer juice jar. Add the water and blend once just to separate the juice from the seeds.
  • Strain using a juice strainer.
  • Now using the same jar, churn or blend all the ingredients (curds, passion fruit juice, sugar or honey) once to combine all well.
  • Transfer to the serving glass and serve chilled with optional added ice cubes.

  • You can use (homemade) passion fruit squash or juice if available handy. In that case you just check and add the sugar only if required as juice contains it.
  • You can optionally top the lassi with a teaspoon of fresh passion fruit pulp if you like its seeds. I like this way.
