Coconut rose drink – Vegan

Rose Lassi1

About:

Rose milk has a mild rosy flavour that makes lovely summer drink. It is a versatile welcome drink in many occasions. It is simple and tasty. Rose syrup is easily available in Indian stores or you can make it on your own by using fresh rose petals.

I veganised by using coconut milk, however it can be personalised as per the taste.

Serves-2
Preparation time-10 minutes

Ingredients:

  • Unsweetened Coconut milk-2 cups (chilled)
  • Pistachios – a handful
  • Rose syrup-2-3 tbsp (I used store bought. It can also be made at home)
  • Agave Nectar 1 tbsp/ as desired

Rose Lassi3

Procedure:

  • Place Pistachio in a blender/food processor and blend it to powder.
  • Then add rose syrup, chilled milk, agave nectar and blend until smooth and frothy.
  • Relish this easiest summer drink.

Serve chilled.

Note:

  • To make Rose syrup at home: Boil 1/2 cup water and cook few rose petals (about 1/2 cup) and once soft just blend it with few tablespoon of Sugar/Honey/Agave nectar. Rose syrup is concentrated form of rose water.
  • Can replace low fat coconut milk with regular milk/almond/soya milk as per preference

  1. This is lovely Chitra, I love the taste of rose, it’s so delicate and delicious. I have made rose ice cream and it’s wonderful. This drink sounds delicious with the almonds and honey,

  2. Wow, this sounds incredible! I love rose anything, but have never thought of adding it to milk. I am definitely going to try this with soya or the almond milk I make in my vitamix. I have rose water not syrup, so I will probably just add a little extra agave or honey. Thanks so much for the lovely idea!
