Lassi is Ayurveda's natural probiotics. It is a combination of yogurt and water with sweet or savory spices. This particular recipe is great for fall with warming spices and a sweet finish.
Lassi aids digestion and improves intestinal flora. Yogurt eaten alone can be difficult to digest due to its cold, heavy and dense properties. The preparation of lassi lightens the yogurt while the spices aid in digestion. As a note, freshly prepared yogurt is preferred over store bought yogurt. It's qualities are lighter and easier for digestion.
