Discover Lassi – The Original Milkshake

Discover Lassi – The Original Milkshake


Traditional to the northern part of the south of Asia, this cooling, nutritious and versatile drink is hailed as the 3000 years old predecessor of the millennial milkshake and a crowd favorite in these parts of the world not only during summer, but all throughout the year. This is Lassi –  dubbed the original milkshake, it is a drink prepared by blending together yogurt, water and different fruit and spices.
It is essentially a digestive drink used for thousands of years to cool down the body during the hot summer days and also to stimulate agni, helping to break down heavily spiced foods. Lassi boasts many health benefits and is packed with nutrients and good bacteria that helps improve gut health, builds up muscle mass and improves bone mineral density, among others. That aside, Lassi has an explosive taste for both salty and sweet tooths alike (Rosewater Lassi is my favorite, recipe below). 


Below the 4 most significant benefits of Lassi:
  1. It helps reduce skin texture and pigmentation, keeps it hydrated and glowing, giving you radiant skin
  2. It boasts a good amount of vitamins, protein and minerals like potassium and magnesium which, together with other enzymes, help convert food to energy
  3. Ensures high levels of hydration, up to 5 times more than regular sodas. 
  4. It contains lactobacillus bacteria which supports gut health
