This recipe is from Delia's Christmas Easy Magazine 2003
Peel the bananas and chop them into small pieces.
Place the pieces in a blender or food processor, along with the yoghurt and milk. Scrape the vanilla seeds from the pod, using the end of a teaspoon, and add the seeds to the blender or processor.
Blend everything together until you have a smooth texture. Pour the lassi into glasses.
If you like, just before serving, sprinkle over some desiccated coconut into each glass.
Or, roll thin slices of banana in desiccated coconut, cut a slit in each slice and slide the slice on to the rim of each glass.

Chocolate Orange (on the left) another easy-to-make non-alcoholic drink for drivers.
Here is something special for Christmas parties and it looks just like mulled wine
A pina colada without the rum (below left), but still tasting deliciously creamy and looking every bit as good as the real thing.
A glass of something warm and spicy goes very well with warmed mince pies during the party season - even though we no longer seem to greet guests rubbing frosty fingers and shaking snow off their boots!
This is a very flexible Christmas recipe, allowing you to adjust the quantities as you wish...and if unexpected guests arrive, just add more water and fruit to eke it out!
