Okay so this recipe seems like a bit of a word salad, but I promise the results will be worth it! Let’s dissect each word, starting with ‘Lassi’. A lassi is a traditional Indian yogurt-based beverage that is typically a creamy, smooth, mango flavor. Think of it like a mango milkshake. Lassi drinks are served cold as a refreshing beverage on a hot day or while eating spicy Indian cuisine. Most lassi’s have savory spices like cardamom or ginger to balance the sweet fruit flavor, so we thought it would be only fitting to add our Copper Cup turmeric latte mix!
We put a vegan spin on this recipe by substituting the traditional dairy yogurt base with organic coconut milk & almond milk. We then threw the blended beverage into a bowl and added texture with some nutrient dense toppers. This recipe tastes how I imagine liquid gold would taste. It tastes incredible. My favorite part is the unsweetened coconut flakes that freeze in the smoothie bowl to add the perfect crunch factor.
