Ginger Peach Kefir Lassi with Chia!

Are you enjoying the summer evenings? How about enjoying the sunset with this Ginger Peach Lassi in hand? Well it is a super quick and easy recipe too! I danced with joy when I tasted my experiment. I could have this for breakfast and dessert !

The markets are flooded with juicy peaches that are simply delicious. So why not combine them with the goodness of kefir, chia and ginger, right? The peaches are so sweet that I did not need to add any sugar to them. I left the skin on for extra fiber and it blended pretty well too. The chia seed powder gives it an extra pudding like texture. I like dry ginger powder here for the subtle backdrop it provides for us to enjoy the distinguished flavor of the peach.

As my husband puts it, I have found yet another way of sneaking in the ‘good for you’ ingredients in one ambrosial lassi 🙂

To make the lassi for 2-

Ingredients- 

  • 2 large peaches, pitted
  • 2 teaspoon chia seed powder. I used white chia seed powder from Whole Foods
  • 1 teaspoon dry ginger powder, or to taste
  • Dash of sea salt
  • 1 cup kefir. I made mine with skim milk
  • 1 teaspoon sugar/ stevia or agave to taste

To make the Ginger Peach Kefir lassi-

  1. In a blender, simply add the peaches, chia seed powder, dry ginger powder and the sea salt and blend until the peaches are pureed. Pour into individual glasses and refrigerate for a few minutes.
  2. Meanwhile, rinse the blender. Add the kefir and the sugar or sweetener of your choice and blend them together. Pour on top of the pureed peach mixture.
  3. Stir layers together, creating designs and enjoy!

Notes/Tips/ Variations-

  • Refrigerate peaches to have a ready to drink cool drink for the summer.
  • You can add mango chunks to this lassi for a flavor variation too.

Here’s to enjoying the summer sunsets!

Love,

Sandhya

  1. I love lassi! I like that you used powdered chia. I have had whole chia seed in beverages and felt like I had to chew my beverage. Sounds and looks great!

    Beautiful refreshing drink for the summer time Sandhya. I’m forgetting, what is keffir again? Also, I guess I could grind up my black chia seeds, as I don’t think I’ve seen that powder and I’ve yet to make a trip to Whole Foods. Like your pictures too, very summery!

      Thank you Loretta. I did overnight oats for our breakfast in the same lassi and we had them for breakfast this morning. Kefir is a fermented drink much like yogurt, very popular in Russia.Once you have a grain of kefir, it is very easy to make it at home so that is what I do. Thank you for your sweet comment about the photos. It seemed like the sun just did not want to cooperate with me:) Took the pictures twice….once it actually started raining all of a sudden….and of course just as i got all the stuff indoors, it stopped raining:)

    Wow, somehow I always thought making lassi was 1) complicated and 2) required a ton of sugar, but your recipe makes it sounds easy and healthy. And such an exciting combination of ginger, peaches and kefir! I can’t wait to make it 🙂

    I love peaches and this sounds like a sweet beverage which I have had left before making it alcoholic while your choice of skim milk sounds good, too.
