Raspberry lassi is Akku's favorite drink at Thali too, a vegetarian restaurant near our place. This is our home made version.
Homemade Plain Yogurt * - 2 1/2 cups
Raspberry (Fresh or Frozen) - 1/3 cup
Honey - 2 Tbsp (more or less according to your sweetness level)
Himalayan salt - a pinch
Add everything to VitaMix or regular blender jar and blend well to make silky smooth Raspberry lassi.
Makes 3 servings
