Candy Lassi

   
Beat the summer heat with this cool and refreshing drink, candy lassi. On a hot summer day, we like to slow down, relax and stay cool by enjoying a refreshing glass of lassi. Lassi, not to be confused with the beloved collie dog, Lassie πŸ™‚ is a popular drink in India. This delicious beverage is an exotic version of the milkshake and is a perfect compliment to any dish. 

  
 There are so many different variations, but there are mainly two ways of drinking this: sweet and salty. Salty lassi is made with spices(cumin), green chillies and curry leaves. Sweet lassi has besides the sugar, fruits, berries or nuts added. Here i had made a combination of pistachios and almond for the nuttiness along with a very unique sweet ingredient , candy!  Yep, you heard it right. I swear, it tasted so different and yumm. 

    
This yoghurt drink is laced with the sweetness of honey and it comes to life with a little bit of orange rind. How can something SO tasty be so easy. Just throw it all in the blender, let it whirl and you have got a gorgeous lassi. You have to just pour them in pretty glasses and serve your family or guests as a refreshing drink after dinner or just anytime. 

  
  
Makes 5-6 glasses

1/4 cup almonds

1/4 cup pistachios

1/2 tsp orange zest

2 candy (i used strawberry flavored lollipop)

1 cup milk 

2 cups buttermilk/ yoghurt

12ice cubes 

5-6 tbsp honey

3 tbsp sugar (or to taste)

1/2 tsp vanilla essence (optional)

  
1. In a food processor or blender just finely chop the pistachios, almonds, orange zest and candy. 

2. Blend them with the yoghurt, milk, sugar and honey and ice cubes till smooth and thick. 

   
 Notes:
