Turmeric_lassi_4I remember growing up as a child my mom used to make these amazing lassi’s for me.
Even today “lassi’ is one of  my India favorites and will always be.

It’s a yoghurt based smoothie that is alkaline in nature and helps to cut down the acidity and soothes the digestive system.

As we are facing winter ,I have come across many people who are suffering from cold, cough and fighting for their immunity. That’s why decided to share this recipe to help you boost your immune system.

The turmeric and ginger flavored banana lassi –  is a special kind of Indian smoothie that I love.
After a long and dark winter, most of us look almost transparently pale and gloomy. Following the natural remedies route, we believe that what we eat affects our bodies. And this lassi is filled with ingredients that can give your immune system and body a natural health boost.

In India, we often drink lassis after a spicy meal. And sometimes as a lighter dessert. Apart from it’s health advantages, it is also truly delicious. The turmeric adds a nice and unusual twist in flavor and has some amazing healing properties.

Immune Boosting Turmeric Lassi recipe:

2 large or 4 small glasses

2 cups organic low fat yogurt with active live culture

2 bananas

2 tsp freshly grated ginger

2 tsp honey, preferably unpasteurized

1/2 lemon, juice

2 tsp rosehip powder (optional but delicious, and a good C-vitamin boost)

1 tsp vanilla extract or ground vanilla

3-4 tsp ground turmeric (or fresh turmeric root)

4-5 ice cubes (optional)
Place all ingredients in a blender and mix on high speed until smooth. Add more yogurt if you prefer. Pour the lassi in two large glasses. For a more stunning presentation, dust 1 tsp ground turmeric on top before serving. Add a straw and serve.

Hope you enjoy this drink.

You can have this anytime of the day.

Let’s stay strong this winter!
