Kiwi Pistachio Lassi | Kiwi Pistachio Yogurt Smoothie



Lassi - a cooling yogurt drink which is the most popular beverage in India during summer. Basically Lassi is a creamy, frothy yogurt-based drink, blended well with a varieties of fruits and seasonings. This beverage has its root from the state of Punjab in Indian subcontinent. Lassi comes in two distinct varieties as sweet and salty. The sweet version is often simply flavored with sugar, which balances the natural sourness of the yogurt. And the salty version is mixed with salt, spices typically cumin powder. The consistency of this drink is somewhere in between milk and milkshake. Traditionally, lassi is served in a handle-less clay cup named as Kulhar. The Lassi aids good digestion and is a healthy addition to any balanced diet. It is 100 percent natural and free from artificial colors, preservatives and flavorings. Also this can be enjoyed with or after meals.





Since summer is going on, so Lassi is a must to be prepared beverage at my place during these days. Well this time, I have used a sour fruit Kiwi to make a slightly sweet lassi, Kiwi Pistachio Lassi. Also some pistachios are added to this drink. The process is so simple and easy to prepare. Within few times, the cold exotic beverage will be ready to refresh our soul on these hot summer days. Just chop the fruit and blend along with rest ingredients to make a smooth puree. Also depending upon the individual sweetness desired, adjust the honey or sugar amount. So do try this Kiwi Pistachio Lassi and give your valuable feedback either in the comment box below or tag me as #firsttimercook on Instagram.
