Creamy Avocado Lassi


In India, avocados are often referred to as butterfruits, and this creamy, dreamy Indian drink does their colloquial name justice. Find the avocado lassi recipe below, which uses both thick yogurt and whole milk.

The flavors of this lassi are very traditional to India. Cardamom seeds add fragrance and sweetness, while the light, delicate notes of rosewater enhance the floral creaminess. This lassi comes together in less than five minutes, and the yogurt helps it retain its bright green color, so you can make this in advance and refrigerate it. Its the perfect after-school boost snack, and you can also churn it to make delicious avocado “lassi” ice cream.
