I have also found lassi’s to be the best and healthy drink during scorching summers.

Chocolate lassi recipe is one simple drink to make you feel refreshed and light. Being so chocolaty, it will always be kids favourite too.

I usually prepare chocolate lassi with cocoa powder. To make it extra creamy, you can prepare it with melted chocolate or chocolate syrup. Sometimes, I add a scoop of vanilla ice-cream to add more taste and richness.

There are quite a lot of variants in lassi’s such as cardamom lassi/sweet lassi, traditional punjabi lassi, mango lassi, chocolate lassi, matka lassi, kesar lassi, dry fruits lassi, etc.

How to prepare Chocolate Lasi?

Take a cup of thick yogurt/curd in a bowl (Store bought or homemade).

Sweet lasi curd

Whisk the curd using a hand whisk or electric whisk/beater or you can also use a blender/mixer. Whisk until NO lumps. When I use a blender, I just put it on pulse mode once or twice, not more.

Sweet lasi whisk

After breaking the lumps, add honey or powdered sugar for sweetness. Adjust the quantity according to your preference. If you have a sweet tooth, you may add some more. I prefer just a medium level of sweet. Substituting honey for sugar is a healthier option.

Sweet lasi honey

Now add a little crushed or powdered cardamom for some extra fragrance. Its completely optional. Combine well.
