HONEY SPICE LASSI~ Most beverages dilute stomach pH… this is one drink you do want to enjoy with your meal.

Lassis are functional as well as delicious. In Indian and Ayurvedic tradition they are used as digestives. Ginger, too, is prized for this property, helping our bodies digest and assimilate nutrients with greater ease.

There are two kinds of lassis served in India, savory and sweet, both made with thinned yogurt, providing probiotics, potential grass-fed fat, protein, and help with digestion.

Ayurvedic wisdom does not condone cold drinks for digestion. So try something different than what recent American tradition has given us a liking for; drink your lassi at room temperature, or cool, but not cold.

    With that much honey why do you need the Stevia too?

  • Sweeten it to taste. You may like it better with only the honey.

  • Rita

    thats what i was thinking!

  • Thanks for asking! The stevia in the recipe allows less honey, which is great for many on healing diets who are even sensitive to honey. This recipe tastes perfect to our family the way it is written. But omit the stevia if that amount of honey alone is enough. I prefer the taste and sweetness with both; and I love using stevia in conjunction with one other sweetener so you get the right sweetness but with less “sugar.”

    Would leftovers be refrigerated and then brought to room temp before consuming? I would consume one serving daily. Thanks.

  • Megan Stevens

    Yes, that would be perfect! 🙂 You could also place a glass of lassi in a larger dish of warm water to expedite the process.

  • Loriel

    Holy yum this looks good!

  • hippygirl

    I just made this and it is very good. Thanks. I used my second fermented (lemon) kefir and added lemon Stevia drops. I will be making this again. I am decreasing my carbohydrate consumpiton at this time but I am really looking forward to adding the honey. It will make this lassi even better than it is now. Thank you again for sharing your recipe.

    I’m so glad. You’re welcome. Your lemon kefir sounds lovely.
