lassi rambutan


Ingredients (serves 2 drinks)

  • 2 cups yoghurt
  • 8 rambutan
  • 2 tbsp rose extract
  • 1/2 tbsp sugar (optional)
  • 1 cup full milk
  • Saffron
  • Rose syrup
  • Chopped pistache



  1. Slit the fruit and peel off the hairy skin. It has a big seed inside which is toxic. So you need to carefully chop the white flesh.
  2. Whisk chilled yoghurt and add it to a blender along with the milk.
  3. Add rose syrup and rose extract
  4. Add the chopped rambutan and the sugar. Blitz to make a smoothie consistency drink. Pour in serving glass and serve chilled.
  5. You can add ice cubes to the drink as well if it's a warmer day... (Don't forget to reduce the water quantity in the recipe)
  6. Garnish with chopped pistache, rose syrup and some saffron.
