Cooling down when it's 110 degrees is not easy.... but I try!

Preparation Time

Prep time: 1 min
Ready in: 1 min
Yields: Serves 1 person (250 ml)

Ingredients and Things You Need

  • Half cup curd / yogurt, this could be obtained from the local store, supermarket or home-made.
  • Half cup chilled water/ice, the lower the temperature, the better for brainfreeze
  • Some sugar, You decide how much some is!

Accessories:

  • Two of each biceps/triceps, A mini-workout is yours for free. Get ready to flex those muscles.
  • One Tumbler or bottle with a tight lid, The lid should be leak and spill proof. Use anything that closes and you can shake!

Instructions

  1. Scoop out some curd or plain yogurt into the cup till it's about half full. Cold curd works best. Stir it a little to break chunks if needed.
  2. Add some chilled water and some ice cubes till it's almost full. The colder the better. Brainfreeze not guaranteed!
  3. Add sugar to taste. I am quite generous with the sugar in the demo video, but you can be a little conservative. Jaggery or honey work well too. A little flavor won't hurt. Experiment to your hearts content. There's plenty of flavored lassi options too.
  4. Close the lid tightly and shake it like your life depended on it. On a really hot day your life may actually depend on this! This is where your free arm workout happens. Feel it? You can do this for 10-30 seconds.
  5. That's it - you're all set for some chilled lassi to freeze your body. Open the lid. Sip it, use a straw or gulp it down - it's your life and you deserve it. Enjoy!

Make It More Exciting!

Add fruity flavors or mint or some honey to make it more flavory. I'm not sure if chocolate helps - I prefer fruity flavors.

Don't like sugar? Alternately, anything that sweetens the drink a little will be good - honey, jaggery, cinnamon, fruit.

A protein shaker works well to prepare the lassi.

Pump out some music as you do it. You'll get a better rhythm when you need to shake.

Make sure your girlfriend is watching you. Don't forget to show off those biceps!

Make a design with food coloring on top to make it look more exciting.

Use a nice glass or cup to improve the drinking experience! Like I've said - you deserve it.

Make a gallon of this stuff and store it in the refrigerator for those midnight thirst pangs!

Variation 1: Tang Mango Lassi

So today, I did the same thing but added a spoon of tango mango juice powder to the mix and it was even more yummy. Still takes under a minute to prepare!

A little tang powder made it chilled mango lassi - even more refreshing!

Variation 2: Chocolate lassi

I added a little chocolate flavoured protein powder to the mix today (15th June, 2019) and had some funky chocolate protein cold lassi. Felt refreshed, energised and strong;

Variation 3: Hershey's Chocolate Lassi

I poured in some Hershey's chocolate sauce into the mix and enjoyed the chocolaty mix. You need to add quite a bit to get a strong flavour though!!

A little Hershey's sounds like a great idea!

Variation 4: Sprinkled Lassi

Added June 2019: Today as I was making my usual chiller lassi, I decided to add a bit of rainbow sprinkles on it. It looked like a good idea when I added. It actually is nice to feel the sprinkles texture in the lassi, but what I found was that most of the sprinkles settle to the bottom in a few minutes. It's still a good variation to add, especially for kids.

Variation 5: Tomato Ketchup Lassi

This was a crazy idea that popped into my head as I opened the refrigerator and I executed it to perfection. I added a good amount of ketchup to the mix and after the customary biceps workout I had a funky red coloured drink. It had a punch to it and was a bit tangy. It's good to have in a warm day - I'd skip this on a hot day as it didn't feel very refreshing!

Variation 6: Tang Orange Lassi

Hot on the heels of the Tang Mango lassi variant comes the Tang Orange Lassi. Just add a little Tang orange orange to the mix and shake for a more refreshing orangy chiller.
