Rose Lassi: A Very Easy Indian Drink

Have you ever tried to make lassi? This drink, which is usually served in Indian restaurants to accompany spicy dishes and calm the fire of spices in the mouth, is very easy to make. Here is the recipe for a delicious rose lassi made with yogurt and organic rose water.


Here are the ingredients needed to make rose lassi for 2 people:

250 g of whole milk yogurt
2 tablespoons of sugar
1 tablespoon of organic rose water

To note: to make this Indian drink, you must use edible rose water, which means organic and 100% pure quality.

You can also prepare this drink in a vegan version as long as you replace the whole milk yogurt with vegetable yogurt made from coconut milk.


The preparation of the rose lassi is very simple, especially if you have a blender.

Even if you don't have a blender, you can also prepare this recipe very easily by mixing the ingredients with a whisk.

1- Pour the yogurt into a container or into the bowl of your blender.
