Lassi

Lassi – quench your thirst instantly – Best summer drink

If you have not tasted this divine drink before, do not let this summer pass without tasting it. Or else you will miss a great chance to experience the utmost joy of this silky smooth, icy cold, velvety drink that slithers through your throat, rejuvenating your whole self with an instant effect. I must say that your summer joy is not complete if you have not sipped a glass of Lassi!

So, hurry up, buy a thick, full-fat tub of plain yoghurt or just Greek yoghurt and go home and make Lassi! Spread the joyful news! Stay cool, stay happy throughout the summer!

Lassi, widely used in the Indian subcontinent during the hot summer months, is the most refreshing, smooth yoghurt drink you can think of.

Getting the proportions right is the key to achieve the right consistency of this amazing drink. When added too much water, for example, the silky smooth texture vanishes. If you do not add ice cubes into the blender jar, the churning will not give the right chill. It should all come together in the right proportions to have the most delightful Lassi in your glass!

Even if you are tempted, do not gulp down the whole glass in one go! Just sip slowly and experience the real bliss of this silky smooth drink that instantly cools you down and refreshes you to the core.

Hurry, let’s whiz this up!
