Avocado Lassi

Its not officially summer here but still am gonna share different summer treats to beat the heat.Am running my third week of blogging marathon with Kid's delight - Beat the summer as this week's theme. Heard that its too hot already in India specially in chennai and everytime i call my family members they just cant stop complaining about the hot weather. Thank god, here its still bit chilled and rainy, however for this week's theme i couldnt stop myself making this healthy drink with avocado. This lassi is quite easy to make and definitely a summer friendly drink.

Avocado Lassi


Avocado lassi is a blend of yogurt, water, roasted cumin powder and avocado, yes this drink is a savoury one, if you want you can very well make the sweet lassis as well. Lassis are enjoyed chilled, mostly taken with lunch, this summer friendly refreshment is an excellent drink to have after a heavy meal. This avocado lassi is definitely a thirsty quencher and dont forget to prepare it if you have avocados at home.Check out the Blogging Marathon page for the other Blogging Marathoners doing BM#50.
