Avacado(Butterfruit) Pista Lassi

Lassi is a typical Indian shake that can be either sweet or salty. This is another recipe I came up with for our summer that is just around the corner. Avocados often referred to as butter fruits, is a super fruit which is known for its creaminess and numerous health benefits associated with it... It tends to be made with thick creamy yogurt, but I find that the avocado makes it creamy enough, so I use a mix of low-fat yogurt and soy milk. What's more, the yogurt/milk mix provides good amounts of calcium and protein. Adjust as you wish, with low fat yoghurt for a healthier option if you must. Here I have used Dry fruit Pista which gives the yummy taste version.Check out some more Beverage recipes like Chocolate Milkshake, Muskmelon Drink, Beetroot Almond Milkshake, Strawberry Milkshake, Pomegranate juice
The flavors of this lassi are very traditional. Cardamom seeds add fragrance and sweetness, while the light, delicate notes of rosewater enhance the floral fragrance and flavor. This lassi comes together in less than five minutes, and the yogurt helps it retain its bright green color, so you can make this in advance and refrigerate it.
