Lime Coconut Lassi

Made with yogurt, coconut milk and fresh lime juice sweetened with a little honey, this coconut lime lassi is the perfect drink on a hot summer day. 

My mom has a go-to place in Houston when she is out running errands. It’s called Rajah’s and her standard order is two samosas and a sweet lassi. Somehow the cool yogurt drink goes perfectly with the spicy fried samosas filled with curried potatoes and peas. And the two together make the perfect snack.

This week my Sunday Supper group is cooking and creating with coconut so I made a delightful chickpea potato curry for the Sunday Supper website. So Tasty! For this space, what could be more perfect than a complementary lassi? The sharp lime juice and yogurt were deliciously mellowed by the creamy coconut and the honey added just the right amount of sweetness. This drink would also make a delicious cocktail with the simple addition of a little rum.

Ingredients - for about 12 oz or 355ml. One tall glass or two shorter glasses, if you feel like sharing.
2 tablespoons fresh lime juice
2 tablespoons honey
1 cup or 240ml coconut milk
1/3 cup or 85g plain Greek (thick) yoghurt
6-8 ice cubes

Add the lime juice and honey to a large clean jar. Swirl around or stir until the honey dissolves in the lime juice.

Add in the coconut milk, yogurt and ice.

Put the lid on the jar and shake until well combined and frothy. Pour into glass or glasses.

Garnish with slices of lime.
