Sweet or Savory Lassi (Indian Yogurt Beverage)

 

Lassi is a simple beverage made from yogurt and water or ice, with sweet or savory ingredients added. Mango lassi is well-known and is simply the sweeter version of lassi combined with the mango fruit.

Lassi most likely originated from the need for a cooling, restorative beverage in the Indian heat. Adding a pinch of salt to your sweet or savory lassi will aid in keeping you hydrated
