Ancient Smoothie – Tulsi Honey Lassi

Lassi may be cosideed as the first yoghurt smoothie in the world. The concept originated somewhere around 1000 BC and began either with fine fruits or pure spices. It is well known for having Ayurvedic healing properties and gives a calming effect to the stomach and mind too.

It is originally from the lands of Punjab and Multan in India. Yoghurt is blended with water; having additives like fruits, spices, jaggery or sweeteners. The major variants of Lassi are sweet or salted. However, there are many new flavors introduced in this drink to give an amazing twist to the traditional yoghurt based drink. It is very refreshing that can be taken with breakfast or lunch.
