What, another smoothie? yeah, when you go for your yoga-workout around 8am, and come back home at 10, with an hour of workout and 40 minutes of walk, you will be literally pouncing on every food item you find on the table. So, to not to spoil the sweat, i try to whirl up a smoothie as soon as i reach home. Since i have a good stock of turmeric, i make myself a Turmeric & herbs smoothie or sometimes a plain thinned buttermilk with salt and hing.
This Celery lassi is something i tried today. The freshness of mint oomps the lassi, to another level.
Ingredients (Makes 2 serves)
1 stick of celery, chopped about ½ cup chopped celery
½ a lebanese cucumber
12-15 mint leaves
¼ teaspoon salt
½ cup plain yogurt
¼ cup of water (optional)
- Take chopped celery, cucumber, mint leaves, salt and yogurt in a blender. Blend smooth and frothy. Check the consistency of the lassi, if too thick, add ¼ cup of water and blend again.
- Serve immediately, garnished with a mint sprig.
This is just so apt for the heat now… very refreshing…
