Lassi / Smoothie / লাচ্ছি

In Ramadan it is good to have lots of water, fruit juice or beverage. But we love to have oily fried stuffs. That’s why we need to make our beverage interesting and tasty.  Lassi / smoothie is an easy simple tasty but healthy recipe. You  can make lassi/ smoothie with mango / banana or with your favorite fruit. I gave 2 different recipe one bengali and one in English, reason for that Misti doi (sweet yogurt) is not available in abroad, but typically lassi is made with sweet yogurt. So english version I used greek yogurt and Bengali version I used sweet yogurt . With love, Rownak N.B.
