Does this cross your mind when you read the title of today’s post….Coconut mein lassi milake, aa jao sare mood banake, a very famous dance beat number from the movie Chennai Express. Then get refreshed with a simple yet delightful recipe of ‘Coconut Lassi’. Of many recipes I learnt here in Chennai, this Coconut Lassi is one of my personal favourite. Being from South India coconut is always been an integral part of our cooking, but after moving to Chennai only I came across many different recipes with this sweet and creamy nature’s delight ‘Coconut’.

How to make Vegan Coconut Lassi

That’s so good to know that you are also from South India….Fazeela…Stay in touch…
Ohhh I’ve never heard of this before but it sounds and looks amazing. Do you just drink it on it’s own or do you usually have it with something traditional?
Lubna Karim says
Chelsea….It can be either the way…you can drink it as just a drink or you can serve with any traditional meal.
Lovely!! Thanks for sharing!!
Looks soo nutritous. I love coconut so much, I grew up surrounded by coconut. I can imagine myself falling in love with this Lassi. What’s coconut meat? Is it what I think it is?
Coconut lassi sounds delicious! Will definitely try it next time I have coconut water on hand!
I can’t believe being a Keralite I never knew about this lassI haha. We usually make with coconut malai and water. I didn’t know about the curd part. I’ll surely try tht out. Thank you
