Sweet Lassi

Have you had a glass of chilled lassi before? If you have, you know how unbelievably yummy it is. If you haven't, you should try it. Its sweet, creamy, cold and have I mentioned yummy. And the best part is, you don't even have to plan a trip to an Indian restaurant to have a glass. If you have some plain, unflavored, unsweetened yogurt you can whip up a glass in minutes.

I fancied this glass up with some strands of saffron and some chopped pistachio. But even without it, this lassi is just as good. Its a perfect way to cool down on a hot summer day. A glass of it is quite filling too, so it makes a nice snack by itself. 



Sweet Lassi
Makes 2 glasses

1 3/4 cup of plain, unflavored, unsweetened yogurt

Put the yogurt, water and sugar in a blender and blitz till smooth and slightly frothy.

Pour into glasses. 

If desired, sprinkle the saffron strands and sliced pistachio on top to garnish.
