If you're looking for a refreshing beverage to create that is inspired by Indian flavors, this spiced lassi might be just what you're looking for. Departing from traditional fruit flavors, this lassi drink incorporates fresh spices to create a unique taste.

Stepping away from exotic fruit flavors like mango, this lassi recipe relies on aromas such as cardamom, almond, pistachio and saffron to create a warm, spiced drink. The beverage begins with soaking the saffron in a cup of milk to bring out the flavors. Then the mixture is put into a blender along with the rest of the spices and nuts and a dollop of yogurt. The end mixture becomes yellow in color thanks to the saffron bright yellow hue. The drink is then enjoyed chilled and would be great to pair with contrasting spicy food.
