What is sweet lassi?

Sweet lassi is a popular and refreshing Indian beverage made from yogurt (curd), water, and sugar. Other popular ingredients include cardamom, rosewater, or fruits.

It’s a classic summer drink in India that is sweet, creamy and slightly tangy taste.

Key characteristics of sweet lassi include:

Yoghurt: Yoghurt forms the base of sweet lassi. It provides creaminess and a slightly tangy flavour. In India, thick and full-fat yogurt is commonly used for the best texture and taste.
