I don’t know if this is the proper way to make lassi – would love to hear how you usually make it! But this is definitely an easy one that you can prepare without thinking. My mom always made it this way and also with rosewater; the delicate rose flavor goes so well with the milky and sweet taste of the lassi. And of course it has to be pink in color: I just used a few spoons of beet juice, easy and healthy. If you can’t buy beet juice, you could of course use juice from fresh beets. Or add some berries. Or plant-based food coloring. Anyway. It’s again one of these recipes that’s almost too simple to write it down, but I’ll try anyway:
For 750 ml (or three cups) of lassi, you need:
250ml (1 cup) of milk
250ml (1 cup) of yoghurt
250ml (1 cup) of cold water
two teaspoons of rose water
two teaspoons of beetroot juice
three teaspoons of sugar or honey or agave syrup
ice cubes if you want
Mix everything together with a handmixer or whisk. Add ice cubes if you want. That’s it! Note that the recipe is easily scalable depending on how much you want to make. Adjust the amount of sugar and beet juice for sweetness and color. Enjoy!
P.S.: In case some of you have noticed: In the last few days, I redesigned this site! Phew! Following a sudden urge to change everything I bought a domain and now this blog is independent and out and about on its own. If you’re subscribing via WordPress this means you can’t like posts in the reader anymore, you’d have to visit the site itself to do that… I hope you will! xoxo.
