How to make the perfect lassi

January 16, 2013 in desserts, Dinner Divas

lassiLassi is typically an Indian drink and is very similar to a fruit shake or milkshake, but the milk is just replaced by yogurt. Yogurt is one of the most used dairy products in India, mostly for its cooling and refreshing qualities. A lassi can be made with any fruit, but at the moment papayas are at their peak here in South Africa so it was my fruit of choice.

During the Dinner Diva Series, our winner diva, Anel Potgieter made lassi as part of her Indian Feast. She served it in between meals as a pallet cleanser, but also to kind of announce the next course. It is so refreshing and delicious that I finished off my entire batch whilst shooting yesterday!
