Banana lassi recipe – How to make banana lassi recipe – lassi recipes

Lassi is a very popular and traditional drink from North India prepared from yoghurt,  sugar and cardamom powder.  It is an ideal drink during summers as yoghurt cools down your body.  You can add different flavours to the yoghurt like mango pulp, bananas, chickoos or even dry fruits and make it more nutritious and flavourful drink.  Here in this recipe, I have added chopped bananas and a pinch of saffron strings to make it more filling and enhance the flavour of the lassi.
