Summer is at its peak in India, nothing is more good than a glass of cold water. We tend to dislike food during this season, juice, fruits and ice cream taste best. Lassi is an ideal drink during summer.

Lassi is a traditional Indian yoghurt based drink. It is made using curd, water and a few spices. It may be sweet or salted. Fruits may be added in sweet lassi.

A few other summer drinks that I have on the blog are :Kiwi Lemonade,Coconut Cucumber Cooler, Strawberry LassiToday, I have cucumber lassi, it is spicy and tasty. Do give a try to this drink.

    Hubby doesn’t like to eat cucumber on its own so add it to lassi. He’ll have it that way. What a cooling, healthy drink.

    Adding cucumber to lassi is a great idea. Lassi in any form is so welcoming in this sweltering heat.
