What Does Peach Kombucha Lassi Taste Like?

Peach kombucha lassi tastes sweet and cool.

The peaches bring a refreshing taste of summer. The rosewater and cardamom have a cooling, spicy flavor.

Peach kombucha lassi has the texture of a thin milkshake—creamy and rich. Enjoy it through a straw or straight from your glass.

What Is a Lassi?

Lassi is a regional name for buttermilk. It is a yogurt drink from Northern India and Eastern Pakistan. There are many different ways to make lassi, but it comes in two common varieties: salty and sweet.

The main ingredients in lassi are yogurt, milk, salt or sugar, and water. Salty lassi combines savory herbs, like fresh coriander, with salt, water, and yogurt.

Sweet lassi combines yogurt, water, fruit, and spices like cardamom and cumin. Lassi is traditionally served in a clay cup called a kulhar.

What Type of Yogurt Is Best for a Lassi?

Lassi is traditionally made with plain, whole-milk yogurt. You can, however, use whichever type of yogurt you like best.


  • Fat-free yogurt
  • Greek yogurt. If you choose Greek yogurt, you’ll need to add a small amount of milk to get the light, smooth texture of a lassi.
  • Dairy-free yogurt. Both almond and coconut yogurt make great substitutions.

What Is Rosewater?

Rosewater is made by steaming rose petals. It is light and fragrant. It is used in culinary settings and in perfumes. Other than its antioxidants, you don’t receive many health benefits from ingesting it.

However, it is a natural antiseptic and can help treat certain infections, heal burns, cuts, and scars, and soothe irritated skin.

Can You Use Any Type of Kombucha With This Recipe?

The best type of kombucha for a lassi is oolong or green tea kombucha. These teas have a mild flavor and will complement the peaches and rosewater.

You can still make the recipe with black tea kombucha, though it has a more robust flavor and may overpower the recipe.

What Are the Health Benefits of a Peach Kombucha Lassi?

Kombucha is full of health benefits. It has billions of probiotics and is full of vitamins and antioxidants.

It is said to reduce inflammation, boost your immune system, and help rid your body of toxins. The other ingredients also boast a slew of benefits.

Peaches, a type of stone fruit, also have a plethora of antioxidants and nutrients. Additionally, they:

  • Have beta-carotene and vitamin A, which improves eye health.
  • May decrease the risk of certain cancers, including breast cancer.
  • Are full of soluble and insoluble fiber, aiding in digestion.
  • May lower cholesterol and high blood pressure.

Plain, whole milk yogurt is high in calcium, B vitamins, probiotics, and protein. It also:

  • May help with weight management and loss.
  • May increase good cholesterol and lower high blood pressure.
  • Could reduce the risk of heart disease.

Cardamom also hosts a plethora of health benefits, including infection-fighting properties and improved heart health.

How Much Caffeine Is In a Peach Kombucha Lassi?

With only 1/4 cup of green tea kombucha, this drink has approximately 7 mg of caffeine per serving—an amount that is barely noticeable to most adults.

You’ll likely get a burst of energy from the vitamins and probiotics in this drink, but not from the caffeine.

Should You Make This Recipe with Young, Sweet Kombucha or Older, Sour Kombucha?

Ultimately the decision is yours, but I recommend older, sour kombucha. Mixed with the sweetness of the peaches and the honey, the drink will be well-balanced.

However, if you prefer sweet drinks, young kombucha is also a great option.

Sarah first tried kombucha in 2015 and she was hooked. Her favorite flavor is ginger, but cranberry comes in a close second. She made her own for many years and loved experimenting with fruit flavors.
