Summer is for deep hydration, healthy fats, hefty doses of Vitamin C and of course, fun things to drink.
A lassi is a traditional Indian yogurt-based beverage. Traditional Lassis are a blend of yogurt, water, spices, and sometimes fruit. Everything in this recipe is as close to the original as possible except for the substitution of fresh coconut yogurt and optional added sweetener.
And... rose. We couldn't leave out the rose. We love adding Royal Sense Bulgarian Rose Water to all things. The flavor is exotic, but it also boasts a number of health benefits including improved digestion, detoxification, boosts mood, balances energy, and freshens breath! If you can't find rose water of course it is optional.
Great for your skin and your immune system.
We're obsessed with this combo right now.
