Lemon Mint Lassi

A lassi is a simple Indian beverage made with yogurt. It’s usually served before or after a meal, to help with digestion. It is traditionally served at room temperature, although in the US it’s normally served over ice. Some are thick like a smoothie, but a thinner version is more authentic. We prefer the latter, and that is reflected in our recipe. Skip the ice and use room temperature water for a very traditional version.
