A light, refreshing Indian yogurt based summer drink.

Plain sweet lassi – A basic iconic lassi recipe. Which is light and ridiculously simple to make. Yogurt is the main ingredient of this drink. Nothing like a chilled glass of frothy sweet lassi to cool down a hot summer day.

What is lassi

Lassi is a cooling and refreshing yogurt-based age-old summer drink originated in the Punjab region of India. Traditionally lassi is made with fresh homemade curd and sugar by churning with a wooden hand blender or ‘Madani’. Then served in earthen pots or tall brassware glasses. Though there are many flavors and variations of lassi available. To enhance the flavor, additional flavors are also added like cardamom powder, saffron, and rose syrup. But this classic one has its own charm.

Health Benefits of Lassi

Few amazing health benefits of drinking lassi. Such as:

  • Lassi aids digestion.
  • Prevents stomach problems like bloating.
  • It is a good source of probiotic.
  • Improves Bone Health
  • Boosts immunity
  • Helps in weight loss
  • Maintain youthful skin

To make this classic Indian lassi recipe I have used yogurt, milk, sugar and ice cubes. You can also use water instead of milk. If you want a thin lassi just add more milk or water. I want to make it light. Hence I have not added malai here. But the using of malai really makes the drink more drool-worthy.
