Papaya lassi recipe – this is the first time I made papaya lassi and I was astounded by its refreshing taste and awesome flavor. In fact after Mango lassi, papaya lassi has become a favorite summer drink.

Generally we just have papaya plain. I have never added papaya to any of the dessert or drinks I make. In our family usually we have Sweet lassi which is the most popular way of making lassi specially in Punjab. but for a change this time I wanted to experiment with papaya lassi and the result was awesome.

Papaya lassi has similar flavors like that of mango lassi. if you are not able to find mangoes then making papaya lassi is a good option to enjoy tropical flavors.

The powdered cardamom also give a nice aromatic touch to the papaya lassi. so you have vitamin A in a glass. A healthy and yummy drink.

I have made the papaya lassi in Vegan yogurt Made with cashews. You can make in regular milk yogurt too. I am not so fond of soy yogurt, so I make all the lassi, Buttermilk and raita in cashew yoghurt. Cashew yogurt is creamy and sweet and makes a good base to make lassi drinks.

  1. Hi Dassana.

    Thank you for this unique recipe. Please let me know can we use the following instead of yogurt:
    1. Milk
    2. Curd

    • welcome radhika. yes you can use curd. in india yogurt and curd/dahi is same. lassi is made with curd. if you only add milk then it will become milkshake.

  5. Wow, I am amazed by this healthy version of lassi. It is simply, goodness in a glass! A little from the cashews and a litttle from the papaya. That is what makes your blog unique!
