Frozen Turmeric Lassi

August 28, 2018

Milky golden drinks spiked with turmeric are everywhere these days, beloved for their exotic flavor and sunset-colored hue. Turmeric, a rhizome popular in Indian cuisine and traditional medicine, has recently become a darling of the American wellness world, lauded for its anti-inflammatory properties, among other benefits. Here, I spliced together a turmeric latte and a mango lassi—a common Indian refreshment made from mango, milk, and yogurt—to create one summer-friendly drink. Since mango lassis naturally contain probiotics from the yogurt, I added in a bit of probiotic powder (see page 17), plus coconut milk and avocado for richness.
