My Very Own Summer Yogurt Cooler (Indian Lassi)

READY IN: 5mins
Recipe by Anu

To beat the heat of the Indian summer, you gotta have something that is light and refreshing that'll cool you down. Lassi is very popular in India, and is a salted yogurt drink, mixed with some seasonings. This is a great accompaniment for a light lunch consisting of salad and fruit. Try it!

Okay, I'll admit to preferring a sweet lassi especially after trying another spiced lassi on this site. This one is actually drinkable and it kind of grows on you. I actually might make this again - which is high praise indeed. My toddler tried it and while she shuddered from the ice cold water, she didn't spit it out. These days a neutral reaction is a good thing lol.

  4. Alternately, you can double or triple this recipe and store it in the refrigerator, it'll keep for a day at least.
