*Sassy Lassy *There are two kinds of lassis served in India, savory and sweet, both made with thinned yogurt, providing probiotics, potential grass-fed fat, protein, and help with digestion. *Ayurvedic wisdom does not condone cold drinks for digestion. Drink your lassi at room temperature, or cool, but not cold. *Yoghurt and kefir help to balance the gut microbiome. *The lactic acid in yogurt prevents H. pylori and other invasive bacteria. *Kefir is a probiotic-packed milk drink that can easily be found in both dairy and non-dairy forms at regular grocery stores. * Can use stevia instead of honey
