Happy Veteran’s Day! To show my appreciation for the men and women who served this country, I made my children a banana lassi. Sure, there is no direct correlation, but considering my husband works at the VA hospital and is on today (and my kids are off), I think that somehow, this banana lassi is a symbol of…something. We shall call it gratitude for the Vets.
Banana lassi is basically a yogurt/fruit smoothie with an Indian name. Here is the recipe that got my son to chug 24 ounces in one sitting.
3 ripe bananas
3 cups whole fat yogurt
1/2 cup honey
2 cups filtered water
I put everything in a 1/2 gallon mason jar and then stick the immersion blender in there. Whrrrrrr……lassi!
Don’t have a stick blender? Well, why not? Requires much less musculature than lugging out that big bulky traditional blender and is totally easy to clean. I have an el-cheapo Oster from Target that I got for $20. Works just fine. Only had to replace it once in 10 years.
