Author Notes: If you’re looking for a super quick, super easy drink/snack, you’ve come to the right place. The neat thing about this recipe is that you can play around with it to suit your own palate. Feeling virtuous? Add honey instead of sugar. Not in the mood for cardamom? Leave it out completely, or add a few extra mint leaves for freshness. The perfect accompaniment for any summer shindig, this lassi is sure to lift your spirits!Kirthana | Theblurrylime
