blackberry~coconut lassi



This gorgeous drink was inspired by a similar one that I saw in a recent issue of Bon Appetit.

Instead of using strawberries, I added blackberries . . . and it was so delicious!




The blackberries give this lassi its sweetness and gorgeous color . . .

                                       the buttermilk adds a unique tang . . . .
     
         and the coconut milk gives it a smooth finish. 




blackberry & coconut lassi
.     .     .     .     .     .     .
Puree 1 1/2 cups blackberries, 2/3 cup ice, 1/2 cup buttermilk, 
1/3 cup unsweetened coconut milk, and 1 Tablespoon sugar in a blender until smooth and frothy. Makes 2.
.     .     .     .     .     .     .




          Our little ones enjoyed it too!

It's a vibrant and delicious Summery drink!



My thoughts . . . 
Light lemon cookies served alongside a  blackberry~coconut lassi 
just might be 
the perfect Summer dessert!

bon appetit!

    what is a Lassi? Your blackberries look fabulous, I'm hoping to dig some up in the fall (my friend is trying to get them out of her yard) and move them to my yard. I adore black berry anything. I wonder if we can make this with almond milk and coconut? we are dairy free.

    1. Hi CailinMarie!

      I was introduced to "Lassi's" for the first time by our friends. Lassi is a popular, traditional, yogurt-based drink, originating India. They're typically a blend of yogurt, water, spices, and sometimes, fruit. I love them both ways!
      They're a refreshing drink, especially in the Summer.
      You could absolutely make it with almond milk. It will lack the "tangy" flavor, but would taste good.
