LASSI is the best health alternative to cooldrinks and sodas. Come summer everyone craves for cool refreshments. Why not try lassi , which is natural and healthy apart from quenching your thirst. 

   Lassi is a popular and traditional yogurt-based drink which originates in the Punjab region. It is made by blending yogurt with water and spices. Traditional lassi (also known as salted lassi) is a savory drink sometimes flavored with ground roasted cumin while sweet lassi is blended with sugar or fruits instead of spices.

Here are some of my tested lassi recipies.
