Refreshing mixed berry lassi with a surprise punch of rose flavor, taking it to a level that is just a little more exotic.
Lassi is essentially a cold yogurt drink that is either sweetened with sugar or a savory version with salt and spices or just salt. I love the Sweet Lassi, that is made so sweet that you can easily have it for dessert. It is made with yogurt that has the right amount of sourness to it to balance out all that sweetness to make is so very refreshing.
Growing up in India, lassi always meant only the salted one or the sweet one. There never was any variations with fruits or other flavors. It is after coming here to the United States that I noticed the mango version of the lassi in almost every Indian restaurant out here. It was as if, that was the thing here. I tasted one and loved it. It somehow does not give you the refreshing satisfaction of the plain sweet lassi but it is such a great drink in itself.
That opened up a world of possibilities for me and I then started making lassi with all different kinds of flavors in it and most all turned out really good. I mean, yogurt sweetened with fruits can not really be bad right. None of them still come close to the satisfaction that a plain sweet lassi gives me, probably because that is what I grew up with, but I love making lassi for summer all the time.
