Apple, Chocolate and Lemon Lassi

Lassi,this popular Indian drink is simply prepared with curd, milk with sugar or salt depending upon one's tastebuds. However you can find lassi now with many flavors and the most favourite lassi for most of the Indians is the mango flavored lassi. Yea even i can drink a gallon of mango lassi and i'll never fail to make them whenever mangoes shows their heads in our Indian groceries here.Lassi,this refreshing thirsty quencher can be prepared in a jiffy. I make varieties of lassi, shakes or smoothies whenever the sun god shows his head here, actually having lassi, shakes or smoothies became a part of our daily routine if its too hot here. Its better to stick with healthy drinks than the sugar loaded store bought juices. Not to forget that lassi can be prepared easily at home with simple ingredients, obviously you can even prepare sugarless lassi just with agave syrup,maple syrup or simply with honey.

My today"s post goes to this month's  Shhhh Cooking Secretly Challenge started by me few months back.We are having fun in guessing other's secret ingredients through the pictures each of us have been sharing in our FB group.Since i messed up with the members i paired myself with two members of the group. Sanoli of Sanoli's Kitchen is my first pair and she gave me apple and lemon as secret ingredients, since i want to make something interesting i opted for a simple lassi than a baking. Chocolate, apple and lemon, works awesome in lassi and we loved it to the core. The dash of lemon juice makes the difference and this drink is seriously a refreshing drink.
