Here for the dehydrated pineapple technique? Jump to section!

Lassi is basically the Indian version of a smoothie but it has a lot of health benefits.

When made with probiotic yogurt, it is great for your digestive system on hot days. This is why the farmers in India are big lassi drinkers - the lassi keeps them cool & rejuvenated to work in the fields after lunch time!


This Pineapple Lassi Recipe is a delicious probiotic blend which is a treat for any time of the day: breakfast, lunch, dinner, meal-on-the-go, or for when you need a quick pick-me-up.

Lassi is usually just made with yogurt that is churned & churned until it becomes frothy.

But this PINEAPPLE LASSI takes it up a notch!


The pineapple in the lassi gives it texture and a delicious taste making it a refreshing drink for an on the go lunch.

There is also a hint of vanilla and cardamom and these ingredients make your lassi (or smoothie) taste so decadent and royal!


Ingredients:

  1. Pineapple - 1 cup

  2. Yogurt - 1 cup

  3. Cane sugar - 1 to 2 tbsp as per taste

  4. Cardamom - 1 to 2 pods

  5. Vanilla extract - 1 tsp

  6. Water 2 tbsp

  7. Garnish : mint and dehydrated pineapple


Directions:

  1. Chop the pineapple, OR if you are using frozen make sure it is not clumped up with ice.

  2. Put everything in the blender EXCEPT garnish items, and blend until smooth.

  3. Pour into a glass and garnish with mint and dehydrated pineapple.

  4. Drink up! OR store in the fridge to be used later. This will stay fresh for a day. Best to make it when you want to drink it.

NOTES:

  1. I used frozen pineapple. You can use fresh too! Quantity remains the same.

  2. You can add Mint extract to the drink if you like the taste. Use 1/2 tsp per glass.

  3. Replace your cane sugar with brown sugar or honey. Quantity remains same.

  4. You can use coconut cream instead of yogurt if you are dairy free. Still tastes great with coconut cream!


How to make dehydrated pineapple?


Dehydrated pineapple chunks - they do sounds fancy. But it's not, at all.

What they also are -

A. Pretty! Perfect for garnishes.

B. An awesome sweet snack to have on deck whenever the sweet cravings kick in.

C. A much cheaper alternative to buying store-bought dried fruits.

You don't need a dehydrator to make these! You can make these in the oven or even in a microwave! Here's how:


Use an oven:

  1. preheat oven to 175 F.

  2. cut your pineapple into chunks.

  3. spread them out on a baking tray with parchment under it.

  4. sprinkle some cane sugar on each piece. This helps to pull out moisture.

  5. cover with another parchment paper and press it down a bit to make sure it stays put in the oven.

  6. cook for 60-75mins, checking now and then.

  7. After almost an hour or more, remove the top parchment & cook until they're crispy. Keep checking since this duration will depend on your oven. If your oven has a fan, keep it on low.

  8. Let cool & they will harden.

Use a microwave:

  1. Cut the fruit into chunks.

  2. take a microwave safe plate and put a kitchen towel on it.

  3. Spread the fruit chunks on the towel and cover with another towel. No need to add sugar in this method.

  4. Cook on medium intensity in 30 second bursts. Keep checking. You may have to shuffle their places since the chunks in the center of the plate will dehydrate faster.

  5. Let cool to harden.
