This is a healthy sounding drink and one that would be nice to drink to cool down. I think I would prefer the sweet lassi.

Thank you for sharing this

Hi Anupama, interesting one, as I like lassi, but the salty one. For some reason, I do not like sweet taste in yoghurts. I have always avoided flavoured yoghurts too. I had lassi at a Persian restaurant some time before, and they had added mint to it which gave a cooling effect and was tasty.

In general, plain yoghurt is my favourite! Thank you for sharing this. Votes up and sharing!
