Ingredients
  • Spiced Coffee Ice Cubes:
  • 2 cups hot espresso
  • 1/4 cup sugar
  • 1 strip orange peel
  • 8 whole cloves
  • 2 cinnamon sticks
  • 2 -inch piece fresh ginger, roughly chopped
  • Lassi:
  • 3/4 cup to 1 cup freshly squeezed orange juice
  • 1 cup plain nonfat Greek yogurt
  • 1 ripe banana, peeled and chopped
  • 2 tablespoons Dutch-processed cocoa powder
Directions
  • Make the spiced coffee ice cubes: Combine the espresso, sugar, orange peel, cloves, cinnamon sticks and ginger in a medium bowl until the sugar dissolves. Cool to room temperature, and then cover with plastic wrap and refrigerate for at least 4 hours and up to 24 hours. Strain the coffee mixture through a fine-mesh sieve set over a large bowl and discard the solids. Divide the mixture among 2 ice cube trays and freeze until solid, at least 2 hours.

  • Make the lassi: Add 3/4 cup orange juice, the yogurt, banana and cocoa powder to a blender and puree until smooth (if you'd like the lassi to be a bit thinner, blend in the remaining 1/4 cup orange juice). Add a few spiced ice cubes to the blender and puree. Pour the lassi into glasses and add 2 more spiced ice cubes to each glass. Serve immediately.
