  • (1) 32oz. (1) 32oz. Bottle of DAH! Vanilla and Cardamom Lassi
  • A few saffron threads
  • 1/4 cup shelled pistachios, unsalted. You can swap out for any other nut you prefer, such as almonds, cashews or hazelnuts.
  • 3/4 cup finely chopped strawberries. You can also swap out the strawberry for another one of your choosing, such as blueberries or raspberries, or blackberries.

Special equipment:

  • Popsicle molds (we used (10) 3oz. wells)
  • Mortar & Pestle, or molcajete


  1. Use a small mortar & pestle to grind the saffron threads. Add the saffron powder to the lassi glass and shake it to combine. The lassi will turn a lovely pale yellow color.
  2. You can coarsely crush the pistachios in a mortar and pestle, or molcajete. Or you could chop them on a cutting board.
  3. Use a small espresso spoon to add crushed pistachios into each popsicle mold. Continue with the chopped strawberries.
  4. Slowly pour the lassi in each well. Place the popsicle sticks into each center and then transfer to the freezer. Allow it to freeze for at least one night.
  5. Enjoy the next day - If the popsicles don't come out of the mold immediately, heat the mold for a few seconds in hot water to loosen them.
