Bright orange, honey-sweet persimmons make a delicious alternative to mangoes in a yogurt-based lassi.
'lassi' on Serious Eats
This tamarind and coconut-enhanced take on a traditional lassi is downright refreshing, a little tart with just the right amount of sweet and smooth.
Before Jamba Juice and Smoothie King took over our morning meals and afternoon snacks, there was the lassi. This yogurt-based beverage has been an Indian tradition for hundreds, and some say thousands, of years. A lassi can be either sweet or savory and is frequently served during the summer to combat the heat. This version is a variation on the tremendously popular North Indian mango lassi, using papaya and citrus for a bright and refreshing drink.
