Vegan Banana Lassi

Lassi is essentially a yogurt-based, sweet and tangy smoothie originating from India. I’ve been enjoying this incredibly rich and creamy (veganized) banana lassi for quite a while now and thought of sharing it with you all.

The list of ingredients are short (only 8) and simple.

Vegan Banana Lassi Ingredients
Ingredients: Banana, Soy Milk, Sugar, Agar-Agar, Cornstarch, Probiotic Capsules, Saffron, Cardamom Powder

First, I prepared vegan yogurt using soy milk + probiotic capsules. To make the texture more yogurt-like, I also added cornstarch + agar-agar. Detailed recipe below.

Soy yogurt is ready!

Remember, it takes around 12 hours for the soy yogurt to be ready so planning ahead definitely helps. I also froze my bananas during this interval so it makes the lassi extra creamy.

Blend everything

Once the yogurt is done, we’ll simply blend all the ingredients together until nice and smooth.

  • 2 cups soy milk (to prepare yogurt)
  • 1 tablespoon sugar (to prepare yogurt)
  • 1 tablespoon cornstarch
  • 1/4 teaspoon agar-agar
  • 2 probiotic capsules
  • 4 bananas (frozen)
  • 2 tablespoons sugar (to blend)
  • 1.5 cups soy milk (to infuse)
  • 8 saffron strands
  • 1/4 teaspoon cardamom powder


  1. Set a pan over medium heat. Add soy milk + sugar + cornstarch + agar-agar.

  2. Bring it to a boil. Turn off the heat.

  3. Strain the mixture onto a large bowl. Let it cool for 20 minutes, or bring down the temperature to 30-35 degree Celsius (around 95 F).

  4. Once it's cool (or warm...depending on how you look at it), add the contents of 2 probiotic capsules. Mix well.

  5. Cover the bowl and let it rest for 12 hours over the counter.

  6. *After 12 hours* Transfer the yogurt to your fridge and let it chill for 5 hours. Meanwhile, lightly warm 1.5 cups of soy milk and add the saffron strands. Set aside and let them infuse.

  7. *After 5 hours* Transfer half of the yogurt to your blender + banana + sugar + saffron-infused soy milk + cardamom powder. You can use the other half of yogurt for other applications (like granola bowl, or more lassi).

  8. Blend until nice and creamy. Garnish with chopped almonds, cashews, saffrons, and dried rose petals. Serve chilled.
