What the heck is Lassi??
Traditional lassi (also known as salted lassi, or, simply lassi) is a savory drink sometimes flavored with ground roasted cumin while sweet lassi on the other hand is blended with sugar or fruits instead of spices.
There are so many ways to make it from Mint, to Mango, to traditional with cumin and other spices. I decided to make a DIY lassi at home for breakfast! Not only does this taste good but its a healthy twist on breakfast, or a snack!
1 cup distilled water
1/2 cup fresh pineapple
1/2 banana ( I freeze mine)
a pinch of chia seeds ( Yes, not in any way a tradition lassi but I LOVE chia seeds)
1 handful of ice
Simply add to blender and blend till smooth. The chia seeds will thicken it up a little and I honestly love seeds in any kind of fruity drink.
This ends up making about 3 cups once all done and its under 260 calories!!! ( this all depends on the yogurt you use!!! )
While some may call it a smoothie, I will stick with calling it Lassi as it sounds more exotic and the base ingredients are the same water, yogurt ( or curds) and ice.
Go ahead go try your own and tell me how it taste!!
