Definition - What does Lassi mean?

Lassi is a traditional Indian yogurt drink that is hugely popular all across the subcontinent.

This is a cooling drink that is served in hot weather, but it also has a religious use. A version of lassi is used in some rituals relating to the different religions in the region.

Lassi can be useful as part of a yogi’s diet to balance mind and body in a natural way.

Yogapedia explains Lassi

Lassi comes in a number of different forms. For example, the classic version mixes yogurt, water and spices together. There is also a sweet version that contains sugar and fruits instead.

Mango lassi is perhaps the more well-known variant outside of Asia, while bhang lassi is prepared using a form of cannabis.

The combination of the refreshment, the energy boost and the digestive aid offered by lassi have made it increasingly popular among people around the world.
