A sweetened Yogurt drink made with Papaya and Cardamom. One of the best thirst quenchers for the hot summer days.
Servings: 2 People
- apaya cubed - 2 cups
- Plain yogurt - 1 cup
- Cardamom - 6 pods seeds removed and crushed
- Sugar - 6 TBSP adjust based on how sweet your papaya is
- Ice cubes - few
Chop the papaya into cubes and place them in the blender with sugar and crushed cardamom.
I removed the cardamom seeds from the pod and discarded the skin. Then, I crushed the seeds to a powder and used it.
Also my papaya was very less sweet. Hence I used the sugar that was needed. You could always start with less sugar and add more, if needed.
Blend the papaya, sugar and cardamom until smooth and then add the yogurt and the ice cubes.
Blend it on high until smooth and creamy and immediately pour it into tall glasses and serve.
If serving later, keep the prepared lassi in the refrigerator until ready to serve.
