Recipes for popular Mango Lassi and refreshing, fusion,vegan, gluten free and figure friendly Lassi flavor combinations.
Lassi is served as a hot weather refreshment drink in India. Traditionally it was a blend of yogurt and water whisked together. It is a probiotic, protein and calcium rich drink that is cooling and easy to digest. Growing up in India I knew of 3 types of lassi-
Khari lassi- a blend of yogurt, water, black salt and a blend of spices that are good for digestion. Check out Indfused’s take on it with the Creamy Avocado Kefir Lassi.
Sweet lassi- a blend of yogurt, water and sugar.
Mango Lassi- Mangoes blended with yogurt and water.
As my interest in fusion cooking grew, I have several kinds of lassi that I love! I have been happy using the traditional yogurt but also using kefir, coconut milk and almond milk with avocados, watermelon, cantaloupes, peaches and blueberries to name a few 🙂
