How To Make Avocado Lassi?
Avocado Lassi- A chilled yogurt drink made with avocado and fresh home made yogurt. Summer Recipes.
Avocado Lassi is a revelation of kinds to me. While i have always added avocados to smoothies, it had never stuck my mind to make lassi with avocado previously. Well, i guess there is a first time for everything. An avocado is a powerhouse of nutrition, especially for kids and youngsters. This fruit lends body to any dish to which it is added without changing the taste significantly. It is for this reason that i like to use avocado in my smoothie bowls and smoothies.
So how did i end up making avocado lassi? Well, my husband who loves my avocado yogurt dip suggested that i should try making something with avocado with a sweet touch. And so, i decided to make a good creamy Indian Lassi with the buttery goodness of Avocado. Like i mentioned before, avocado by itself lacks any taste or flavor. So in order to give this avocado lassi a good flavor boost, i added some mint leaves and a splash of orange blossom water along with lemon juice. And i must say the combination was fantastic. Just a word of caution though- a very small amount of orange blossom water goes a long way so do not add more of it than the recipe calls for. I used homemade yogurt to make this lassi. You can also use greek yogurt to make this.
