Fruit-punch-lassi

Fruit punch lassi is a super summer drink. Lassi is popular drink in many parts of India, it is basically a churned curd or yogurt, flavored with either sweet or savory masala. It can be plain churned curd or the blend of fruits to the traditional lassi. Flavors like cardamom, nutmeg, saffron can be used. It is thick, heavy and quite filling drink. I had few fruits in my refrigerator and wanted to clear them up, so churned it into this fruit punch lassi. Here is my version of making the lassi even healthier by adding combination of fruits rich in dietary fibre, potassium, antioxidants, flavonoids promoting healthy digestive tract. I have used custard apple, papaya, red apple and banana. This lassi can be served with breakfast, after lunch or dinner. This yogurt based fruit punch lassi has a soothing property on the digestive tract.
