This lassi is really thick since less amount of liquid is used vs amount of yogurt. And because it is thick consistency it is also quite filling and heavy. But if you prefer thin and light version then add more liquid (water or milk).

It is cooling to your body during the hot or warmer days. Because it is made from yogurt and it has cooling properties.

Other than this sweet version, there are many other variations to the lassi. E.g. salted lassi, masala lassi. It is also made by adding fruits like mango lassi.

If serving it right away or immediately then always use chilled yogurt and chilled water/milk. Or you can make it ahead of time and let it chill in the fridge for few hours before serving.

Traditionally it is topped with malai or makhan (white butter) or sometimes with khoya or rabri. I have not added any topping here otherwise it would make it too heavy.
