Lassi is one traditional drink and it is very popular sweet drink in India. This is very cool drink and it will become soft, smooth and frothy when we blend well. We all have tasted at least one lassi in our life. It can make with any fruits which you like. I made many lassi in my home by using different fruits and Mango Lassi is my favourite among them. Mango lassi, Apple Lassi, Pineapple Lassi and Watermelon lassi are the most common lassi drinks.
Today, I made cool and sweet Lassi with red colour Cherry. I haven't get fresh Cherry so I used sweet red Cherry from shop. I used fresh Cherry Lassi from outside but taste may change if use this Cherry. My opinion is that Fresh Cherry is better to make Cherry Lassi because it will have a fresh and good flavour.
This drink can make within few minutes because its method of preparation is very easy. This is better to use in summer season. This is made by using the combination of chilled Milk and Yogurt which is very useful to health. We have very less ingredients to make this drink and it is having a creamy effect. I made this drink without Water but you can add a little Water to this if you need. This is suitable to children so you can give them when they coming back from school. You can make lassi with some spices such as Black Pepper powder. We can make herbal lassi with Mint Leaves and Basil Leaves. This drink has attractive Pink colour so we will get a tendency to drink this. I am really happy to share this to all because its taste is amazing. If you need to drink variety and tasty traditional cool drink try to make this and enjoy a lot.
