Blueberry Lassi

Mr. Radar has a breakfast conundrum. As in, he is anti-breakfast.  He claims coffee is his “morning food.” As if coffee can even be considered a food!  A few weeks ago, I noticed his pants beginning to gape at the waist. Already skinny as a rail to the point of non-existence, I felt the need to snap into action.  I became determined to feed him a good breakfast.  It was my personal mission. I tried everything from muesli, fruit, oatmeal, even quinoa. All no dice. He’d eat a few bites and hurry off.

But finally, I found the lassi. Portable, fresh and sweet.  I thought I’d use a little reverse psychology on Mr. Radar just in case. After so many failures, I wanted this one to stick. So I first fed him the lassi in the afternoon. He drank it all up. Next morning, I introduced the lassi again. “Since you liked it so much yesterday, I made it for you again.”  Game, set, match.

Blueberry Lassi

Makes two 8 oz servings

1 1/2 cups of unflavored yogurt (not Greek Yogurt)

1 1/4 cup blueberries

1/4 tsp fresh ginger, grated

2 tablespoons of honey

Handful of ice cubes

Combine the yogurt, blueberries, ginger and honey in the blender. Give it a good pulse. Add the ice cubes and blend until smooth, no more than a minute.

Pour into chilled glasses and enjoy. Or you can make ahead.  I make Mr. Radar’s lassi at night, put it in a travel mug and store in the coldest part of our refrigerator. Works for me!

  1. This made me laugh, because while it looks wonderful, my wife can’t get me to eat breakfast either.

  2. Oh i love breakfast.. sometimes I wake up in the morning and lie there for a minute deciding what i am going to make for breakfast, i am such a geek,.. Though i actually don’t stop for breakfast until about 10, however this looks perfect to me, i will probably wake up thinking about it tomorrow so i had better make some yoghurt!

  3. I love you idea! I’ve never made or even tasted a fruit lassi, we always seem to be making protein shakes… thanks for the recipe, it will be fun to try!
