Lassi Recipes


There is nothing more refreshing on a hot summer’s day than a deliciously cool beverage.

Lassi (pronounced “luss-see”) is a traditional Indian drink made with yogurt and blended with different flavors and spices. It is absolutely delicious and also nutritious and healthy. These are some of my favorite lassi recipes for keeping cool on those humid afternoons.


SWEET LASSI

Yield: 2 glasses

Ingredients:

1 cup good quality yogurt (lowfat is fine)
½ cup of buttermilk (lowfat is fine)
2 tsp of sugar, to taste
pinch of saffron
handful of ice cubes

METHOD:

Using a blender, blend all of the ingredients until frothy.

VARIATIONS:

You can add a pinch of ground cinnamon or a pinch of freshly grated nutmeg or a pinch of
cardamom powder instead of the saffron for a different but equally delicious taste.

SALTY LASSI

1 cup milk (whole or lowfat is fine)
