Pineapple Lassi Or Smoothie

With the warm weather upon us, these come in handy to keep cool. I use it as an after-school snack, but could also be used as a dessert. I omitted the ginger usually used in a lassi, since that is my family's preference. I also use frozen pineapple chunks, so I can omit the ice, which helps concentrate the flavor. Enjoy!



  • 3 cups frozen pineapple chunks
  • 100 to 150 mls simple syrup, adjust according to taste (see recipe below)
  • 2 cups plain yogurt
  • 1 cup milk
  • 1/2 tsp ground cinnamon

Simple Syrup

  • 1 cup water
  • 1 cup white sugar



  1. Blend all lassi ingredients (except simple syrup) in ice-crushing blender until desired consistency.
  2. Add simple syrup according to desired sweetness.

Simple Syrup

  1. Melt sugar in water. Stir well before use.
