Mango Turmeric Lassi Smoothie

A cross between yogurt and a smoothie, this Indian-originated beverage is at once sweet yet savory, light but oh-so satisfying.

Tip: Aside from drinking straight up, this lassi is perfectly paired with your favorite granola and berries, tossed in chia seeds for a quick pudding, or in a smoothie bowl with fruit, nuts and seeds of your choice.
