On a warn summer day, almond lassi provides a cool refreshing drink with a rich nutty taste. Stir occasionally to
prevent the nuts from settling down at the bottom of the glass and serve chilled.
Preparation time: 10 minutes
- Almond, peeled and ground – 100 gm (This is available ready made in most super stores.)
- Yoghurt – 500 ml
- Sugar – 8 teaspoon or to taste.
- Almond essence – few drops. (Optional)
- Water – 500 ml
- Ice cubes – handful.
- Put the ground almonds, yoghurt, sugar, almond essence, water, ice cubes in a blender and blend for a minute.
You can use cashew nuts, plain unsalted peanuts, pistachios or walnuts as a substitute for almonds.
Add only ice (no water) if you want the lassi to have a thick and smooth consistency.
