Lassi, Sweet Lassi

Lassi is a drink from India that is made with thinned yogurt. You can prepare them salty or sweet, thick or thin, but always, in my opinion, cold.

For a treat, and because I am tired of making bricks, I prepared a cold, refreshing, pomegranate lassi for my afternoon refreshment. It was so good, and is so easy, I thought I would include the recipe for any that want to enjoy a Lassi.

Sweet Fruit Lassi
1 serving

3/4 cup freshly made or organic yogurt
1/2 tbs agave nectar
1/2 tbs organic 100% fruit syrup (organic for your health)
1/4 cp berries or other juice laden fruit (organic please)
1/4 cp milk of your choice (again, organic for your health)
3 to 4 ice cubes

Place all ingredients in a blender and process until smooth. Pour into a serving glass - I like mine in a nice goblet - and serve.

To your health!

Dear Emma's Daughter,
You know how you can just add a little warm water to dog food and all of a sudden your four-legged friends gobble it up like it's a rare delicacy? Is there a human equivalency?!

Gentle Curious Reader/Follower;

Yes dear, it is called sugar. As far as yogurt goes, it is the key ingredient to palatability in most humans.

Ahhhhhh, sweet sugar!
