Fresh Turmeric and herbs Yogurt Smoothie/Fresh turmeric lassi

Atlast, school reopens! I was so looking forward to this week. Both my kids have started with their routine. It is not like i don’t like them at home, it is ok if it is a day or two,  more than that  they become crazy. No routine, eat,sleep, play and eat mom’s brain. Every 2 hours, they want something to eat, because of boredom, how long will they be playing, watching TV?

Once they start school, everything will fall in place, eat time,sleep time, study time, and play time! Apart from this, i miss my workouts if they are at home. Which makes me dread long holidays! 

With school, summer too is arriving here. Though it is a breezy on and off, we can feel the heat mid-day! So, it is time for cool summer drinks and frozen treats.The first on my list is yogurt smoothies/lassi. They cool your body and also quenches your thirst. 
Today’s recipe uses fresh turmeric root and ginger along with fresh herbs. The smoothie is so refreshing with a beautiful green color. I normally don’t add salt to this, but have mentioned in case any of you prefer to add.  Try it and let me know how you liked it.
