About The Recipe
Lassi is sweet, creamy and frothy yogurt or curd based Indian drink. Generally, lassi is made by whisking sugar, yogurt or curd with water. Adding fruit brings fruity taste and flavour in lassi, which is refreshing.
Summertime is lassi time. Lassi is always part of our meal during summer. To beat the heat in south, a glass of lassi is must. Lassi being probiotic helps in digestion and gives cooling effect to the body.
There are many variations of making lassi. Pineapple lassi is one example of it. Pineapple brings zingy flavour and cardamom brings aroma in lassi. This pineapple and cardamom flavoured fruit lassi is truly refreshing and hydrating.
Fruit Flavoured Lassi
Adding fruits and dry fruits have always been part of making lassi. Mango Lassi has always been most loved summer drink in India. I love adding peanut brittle as garnish on mango lassi. This brings nice crunch and taste in mango lassi.
Apart from this, Pista Mango Lassi has always been trending recipe on my blog. Pistachio and mango blend perfectly and bring nutty and fruity taste in lassi.
Mango, pineapple, apple, banana, are few of the fruits which are commonly used in making fruit flavoured lassi.
Lassi is also made by adding blueberries, strawberry, passion fruit, rose, saffron, mixed dry fruits, chocolate, etc;
Main Ingredients To Make Pineapple Lassi
Pineapple – You can easily use store bought pineapple chunks or pineapple juice or fresh pineapple pieces to make lassi. I prefer using fresh pineapple pieces.
Curd – Prefer using fresh, thick and creamy curd. I always use homemade curd to make lassi. Prefer fresh curd only. A day-old curd or sour curd will impart sour taste to lassi. Use soya or coconut curd to make vegan pineapple lassi.
Cardamom – Adds aromatic flavour to lassi. I love to add cardamom to my fruit lassi. If you don’t like, then you can simply skip adding it.
Sugar – I used white granulated sugar. You can use honey too.
Chilled Water – Lassi always tastes best when served chilled. Adding chilled water while whisking the curd will keep the lassi cool.
